Charlie’s fund has very specific aims; to support families bereaved of their children, critically ill children and families living with metabolic disease. Our current focus is disseminating our book ‘The Little Star’ into UK children’s hospices.
The books will be part of a resource bag given to bereaved children; a tool to support their grief.
However, over the last 7 years we have also supported several other projects and organations…
They have a wonderful website (www.careforthefamily.org.uk/bpn) full of useful information for families and friends who have been affected by the loss of a child.
Charlie's fund have donated a substantial amount of money to Care for the Family to ensure that their invaluable support for parents like us, continues.

With the help of Charlie’s money, CLIMB have published an MCADD website and are now holding an annual MCADD conference. The conferences are attended by families affected by MCADD, nurses, researchers, professors and Doctors from across the UK who shared their MCADD knowledge, experiences and research.
Charlie’s tiny life is having such an inspirational influence. CLIMB have also used Charlie’s fund to improve life for families living with MCADD by changing the main protocols and guidelines and translating them into the major European languages so that families can download copies to take with them on holiday.
