Uganda's first ever children's operating theatre


We are delighted to have helped twin the Royal Aberdeen Children's Hospital with children's services in Kampala, Uganda. The result of which is ARCHIE in Africa Day! Find out more here. 

It's back! The easiest fundraising event you can possibly imagine - do NOTHING for a month and make a huge difference for sick children! Get every man you know to join us, shave on Christmas morning and then DON'T shave again for a month! Simple - and you get a cool beard!

Our Mission



To The ARCHIE Foundation

The Tayside

The Highland

We 'Make the Difference' for local children when they are sick. We don't provide anything the NHS should, instead we provide more advanced or extra facilities, equipment, people and training. We also provide extensive support to families of sick children. If you'd like to know more, please click this link:

Every year we provide a large number of emergency grants to support children when they are sick. We also support larger grants to allow services to develop or advanced care to be given. NHS Staff and parents can apply. You'll be asked to register on your first application.

archie in africa day - march 31st 2016

Every year we impact on the healthcare of more than 175,000 sick children. We buy specialist equipment, support families, create amazing hospital environments, enhance staff training, buy toys, fund research, provide specialist staff and respond in emergencies. Our donors, volunteers and supporters make this possible and we're hugely grateful to every single one of them. 

This is a temporary mini-site while we redevelop our main website. If you can't find everything you need, please call us on 01224 559559. Some links from this site will take you into our old one. Just in case you wondered why the style had changed :)
