The Archie Foundation

The ARCHIE Foundation is a charity that makes the difference for local sick children when they are in hospital or require long-term medical treatment.

The Archie Foundation was formed in 2000, to support the build of a new Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital.

The charity started with a simple mission – to make the difference for local sick children, providing much-needed extras not already catered for by the NHS.

RACH opened in 2004 and the charity’s impact was clear to see. Our support at RACH is ongoing and wide-reaching and Archie has now helped over one million children by funding vital “extras” to complement the excellent care provided by NHS Grampian. You can read more about our work in the Grampian region here.

Evidence of the tangible difference Archie had made through partnership with NHS Grampian invited calls for the charity to extend its geographical reach and widen its range of services, leading the charity to become a key provider of vital support to families across the north of Scotland.

The Archie Foundation exists to make the difference in healthcare and bereavement for local children and their families. We do this by working in partnership with the NHS and other child development and childcare professionals including, but not limited to, those working in the education and social work sector.

We might be best known for our large scale capital fundraising appeals to help transform the clinical environment faced by children and families when they visit healthcare facilities in the regions we support but we do so much more than this and as in life, it is very often the smallest things that make the biggest difference.

Everything we do, from the eye watering £2million campaign that will transform a major NHS project to the £2 cup of tea that will provide a vital, brief moment of comfort and respite for an anxious parent, is all thanks to the generosity of our supporters. We really couldn’t do it without you and we are so grateful for your kindness.
