Charlie Cookson Foundation

The Charlie Cookson Foundation was created by Charlie’s parents after he passed away, to support other families who have a seriously ill child with a life-limiting condition.

The Foundation selects one family per month and offers financial support to that family over a three-month period to help them cope with the extra cost of having a sick child under 16 years. This may include help with the mortgage, utility bills, petrol and food.

To apply: download an application form from the website. Financial information and a supporting letter from an appropriate professional will be required.
