Your local team:

not just in rach...

The ARCHIE Foundation recently completed an installation of work in children's services in Orkney and are investing heavily, thanks to a local appeal, in the Children's Ward in Elgin. In fact, we work in more than 20 hospital sites across the North of Scotland and the Islands. This is a temporary mini-website while we rebuild our main page. Once it's ready you'll be able to read much more about that work here. In the meantime, follow us on Facebook for more information! 


find us on youtube!

We always need more volunteers - to help out in the office, at events or perhaps distributing our collecting cans. 

If you can spare a few hours a week, especially if that's on a regular basis, please get in touch!

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.

Join us!

To The ARCHIE Foundation

at the Royal Aberdeen Children's Hospital 

We are currently celebrating the tenth anniversary of the Royal Aberdeen Children's Hospital. Since the first patient was admitted to the hospital more than one million children, parents, brothers and sisters, and worried grandparents have followed.

We hope to raise more than £2m to make a huge difference to the Children's Hospital and transform the experience for the next one million visitors. 

We will transform the environment, invest to support the staff, buy new equipment, help more parents, keep long-term patients in touch with friends, and generally make the hospital a wonderful place to be treated when you're sick.
