The Starfish Appeal aims to raise £450,000 to create a dedicated warm, bright and engaging space for the children, young people and families who use our children’s services and outpatient waiting areas.

We want to provide activities, materials and equipment in the new area to help the children that visit express themselves and have fun. It is important to provide preparation and distraction techniques as well as multi-sensory experiences to alleviate any anxieties and misconceptions that the children may have while they are waiting.

These techniques are also helpful in relieving boredom and benefit recovery, recuperation and rehabilitation.

With your help we can make a real difference to the thousands of children who visit the RD&E every year by enhancing the care our children receive.

If you want to fundraise for our Starfish Appeal, please set up a fundraising page here.
