Helping Hand is an independent Charity which operates through a board of trustees and fundraises exclusively for “The Children’s Hospital”.

Increasing pressures on the National Health Service make it essential to find additional sources of revenue – to provide the best equipment, to fund research, education and to support the immediate needs of children and their parents.

The Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children has been caring for children since 1873. Today Royal Children’s is a dedicated children’s hospital which functions as a district general hospital and also houses most of the Pediatric Regional specialties for Northern Ireland.
