archie in africa day - October 13th 2017

We created Uganda's first ever dedicated 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. 

Calling all dads, grandads, uncles, brothers and cousins! Make a huge difference by joining our annual challenge to grow your beard!

Shave on Christmas morning and then again after Burns Night on January 25th! It's the easiest fundraiser ever!

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 huge number of grants to support children when they are sick. We also support larger grants to allow services to develop or advanced care to be given and we provide training bursaries for nurses. NHS Staff and parents can apply.

To The ARCHIE Foundation

Every year we impact on the healthcare of nearly 200,000 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. 

We exist to make a big difference for local children when they are sick, in hospital or in need of long-term healthcare. We also take skills learned in Scotland to develop children's surgical programmes in East Africa through our ARCHIE Global Surgery Programme. You can find out more about all of this here on our website.
