Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity provides specialist nurses and support to seriously ill children. Roald Dahl believed in the importance of children and in helping them overcome life's toughest challenges. He was one of the world’s most imaginative and loved storytellers and he left a marvellous legacy - Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity. Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity, which provides specialist nurses and support to seriously ill children, was established in 1991 by Roald Dahl’s widow Felicity, shortly after his death. Today, there are currently 79 Roald Dahl Specialist Nurses caring for over 21,000 seriously ill children across the UK. Roald Dahl Specialist Nurses are a vital lifeline to the children and their families, supporting them clinically and emotionally. The charity supports children affected by complex, lifelong conditions that are underfunded, under-resourced and under-recognised including Rare Diseases, Sickle Cell Anaemia, Neuro-Muscular Conditions and Epilepsy.
