Who we are

Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity, provides specialist nurses and support to seriously ill children, was established in 1991 by Roald Dahl’s widow Felicity, shortly after his death. Today, there are currently 78 Roald Dahl Specialist Nurses caring for over 21,000 seriously ill children across the UK. Roald Dahl Specialist Nurses are a vital lifeline to the children and their families, supporting them clinically and emotionally. The charity supports children affected by complex, lifelong conditions that are underfunded, under-resourced and under-recognised including Rare Diseases, Sickle Cell Anaemia, Neuro-Muscular Conditions and Epilepsy.

The Charity is looking for enthusiastic and committed people to join the board of trustees and support it with their skills and experience to help the charity achieve its objectives of looking after seriously ill children and their families.
