Who are Dreams Come True
Dreams Come True is a children’s charity serving the whole of the UK. Our mission is quite simply, to make dreams come true for seriously and terminally ill children across the country. Over the last 24 years we have brought happiness and joy to more than five thousand children as well as their friends, family and carers.
What We Do
Dreams Come True helps children with both life threatening and long-term illness. We operate with complete integrity and dependability – liaising, coordinating, organizing, funding and often accompanying the Dream children – to ensure that each child has an unforgettable experience fulfilling their dream, with wonderful memories to share with loved ones and friends.
Each dream is unique. Some children want to meet their celebrity hero or favorite Disney character while others want to visit their grandparents abroad, ride a unicorn, swim with dolphins or work on a fashion magazine. Many want help with their everyday lives and Dreams Come True is delighted to provide vital sensory equipment, wheelchairs or specially adapted bicycles as well.
Why We Do It
Dream Children often have very little to look forward to apart from endless rounds of hospital visits, painful treatments and the prospect of living with a long term debilitating disease. These very brave youngsters can become depressed and frustrated, yet they all dream of things they want to do and achieve.
Fulfilling a dream provides a positive focus empowering both them and their families with new enthusiasm and strength to deal with ongoing daily struggles of illness, grueling hospital treatment and sometimes sad loss. It is a legacy of hope and well being that is poignantly expresses in many hundreds of thank you letters we receive from Dream Children and their families.
