apply for funding from the archie foundation:

Making the difference for sick children in the North of Scotland

The ARCHIE Foundation

The ARCHIE Foundation has a comprehensive funding programme. We provide grants for many projects including those for: individual children currently in the care of the NHS, to support families during extended hospital admissions, to support NHS child health staff to undertake advanced training courses, to fund specialist equipment, and to fund specialist staff posts. If it will make a difference for a child being treated in hospital, or with an on-going healthcare issue, then we are happy to hear from you to see if we can assist. 


We also provide long-term project support such as The ARCHIE Family Centre, which includes 19 bedrooms for parents of patients in Royal Aberdeen Children's Hospital, our Specialist Nurse post, other advanced staff posts, research into illnesses affecting local children and major refurbishment or development projects such as the new Highland Children's Unit in Inverness and the Tayside Children's Hospital appeal.  


Our funding process is quick but sufficiently robust to ensure we do not fund anything that should be provided by the NHS. Our funding is always to be in addition to what is supplied by the National Health Service. You can apply for funding that will make a difference for any child, or group of children, accessing care in NHS Grampian, NHS Highland, NHS Shetland, NHS Orkney and NHS Tayside
