Charity number


The Dorset Children's Foundation was set up in 2013 to improve the lives of local sick and differently abled children and since then we have donated over £500,000 to local children. We are a small, independent charity and fund medical expenses, mobility equipment and therapies not covered by the NHS. The DCF also grant life enriching experiences, to create special memories that last longer than a lifetime. The therapies and equipment that we provide improve the lives of children with disabilities, over and above pure medical necessities and help to improve the quality of life for children so that they can gain better movement, overcome isolation, improve their self-esteem and play a larger part in the society around them, be that with family or at school. The DCF also provides a network of support for parents in a similar situation and sponsors accessible fun activities where everyone can join in, providing the opportunity for our families to get together. Our 3 successful charity shops in Bournemouth, Dorset, cover all our modest overheads so every single penny that is donated goes to the children - 100%. We are 'big enough to make a difference but small enough to care.'
