No family with a seriously ill child should have to cope alone
Our vision is to help more children and their families by extending our range of services and the areas where we work. Ultimately, we believe no family with a seriously-ill child should have to cope alone and so we are seeking to expand in the following ways:
Help more children and their families
Build our support team to meet increasing demands for family care.
Ensure that all families who live in our current hospital catchment areas (Kingston, Epsom, St Peter’s, St George's and East Surrey) have access to our existing services.
Roll out a comprehensive programme of hospital improvements in Kingston, Epsom, St Peter’s, East Surrey and Croydon Hospitals.
Develop new family support services
Improve experiences for children with cancer or life-challenging conditions, and their families, through the development of new services.
Test new ideas by getting input from our families, and launch several new family support initiatives.
Explore new geographical areas for expansion
Extend Momentum Children's Charity services to other areas.
Build on our model of hospital-linked family support to reach more families and improve more hospital environments.
Raise awareness locally
Build our visibility and presence in the local community and extend our supporter base.
Actively promote volunteering opportunities to help improve awareness about Momentum in the areas we work.
Continue to support our many fundraisers.
In order to achieve this vision, we need to raise funds. We rely almost 100% on individual donations, and are very grateful to the many fantastic fundraisers who have supported our work so far and who continue to raise money. There are lots of ways you can get involved and help us to make a real difference to local families.
Celebrating 15 years
The goal for our 15th anniversary year is to raise £900,000. This includes £700,000 we need to raise this year to continue our work and deliver our vital ongoing support. In addition, we have three major strands of work for which we need a further £200,000. Our 15th anniversary appeal aims to build on our successes over the years, and raise funds for several vital projects that are key to our future growth.
