Nottingham Hospitals Charity is the charity at the heart of care for patients at Nottingham’s hospitals, raising money to improve facilities, fund new state-of-the-art equipment, provide important additional services for patients, support staff development and initiate local medical research at Queen’s Medical Centre (including Nottingham Children’s Hospital), City Hospital, Ropewalk House and Hayward House hospice.
In November 2016, Nottingham Hospitals Charity launched the Big Appeal for Nottingham Children’s Hospital, with the aim of raising £4 million by 2021 to help to transform children’s care and research new treatments. Nottingham Children’s Hospital – based within Queen’s Medical Centre – cares for more than 60,000 young people every year. Children from across the Midlands are treated for everything from cancer and leukaemia to kidney disease, organ transportation, life-long acute respiratory problems and broken bones.

WAIS – Women’s Aid Integrated Services
Women’s Aid Integrated Services (WAIS) is a charity based in Nottingham and South Nottinghamshire that helps women, children and teenagers affected by domestic abuse. Domestic abuse isn’t just physical…it’s also about control and fear and it’s surprisingly common:
- 1 in 4 women will experience domestic abuse in their lifetime and
- 1 in 5 children are exposed to it
We run the local free 24-hour free Helpline (0808 800 0340); we have expertise in working with women from all backgrounds; we run two refuges as well as many crisis and recovery services. We even have a pet fostering service so that women can move into emergency accommodation without the worry of leaving a pet in the care of violent person.
Every call we take or support session we give, could lead to a woman making a decision that prevents her and her children from becoming victims of homicide. We’re currently running a campaign to save one of our refuges.

When You Wish Upon a Star
When You Wish Upon a Star has a simple mission, to grant the Wishes of children living with a life threatening illness.
The charity was founded in Nottingham by Barbara White who was so inspired by a seriously ill four year old with a dream to meet Mickey Mouse that she wanted to bring smiles to the faces of many more brave and courageous children.
Our Wishes have the power to transform the lives of the children and families we work with and since 1990 we have proudly granted over 17,500 Wishes across the UK.
We believe every child deserves to smile and with your support we can provide time away, giving children and their families something to look forward to through times of uncertainty and often financial as well as emotional strain. Wishes allow the family to put their child’s illness on hold as they have fun and create precious memories.
