<Brightening the lives of children in hospitals across the UK.>

 What is Sunshine in Hospitals?

Our hospital team delivers sunshine to children up and down the country currently receiving treatment in hospitals.

From our activity days to our sensory bags, we aim to reach children and their families when they need it the most.

Our projects help to reduce anxiety, loneliness and isolation in the hospital and hospice environment for seriously ill children and their families.

Liquid to Tablets

We're teaming up with play specialists from Leeds Children's Hospital to help children and young people switch from liquid medication to tablet medication with our special kits.

This transition not only enhances the well-being of the children but also contributes to cost savings for the NHS.
