About Us

MedEquip4Kids improves the health of children and babies in the UK by providing equipment not available from limited NHS resources. We believe every child should have access to the best medical care when they need it most.

Since 1985, MedEquip4Kids has raised over £20 million to care for around 128,000 children a year at hospitals across Greater Manchester, Merseyside, Cumbria, Lancashire, Yorkshire and beyond. We provide lifesaving paediatric medical equipment, play facilities in hospitals to calm and distract anxious children, specialised equipment to give disabled children a better quality of life, and resources to improve children’s mental health.
