About Dreams Come True Charity
We are a national UK charity that works hard to make dreams come true for children and young people with serious and life-limiting conditions aged between 2 and 21 years old.
Fulfilling a dream can help a child or young person to think beyond their illness or disability and focus on something highly positive and empowering. The experience can create amazing memories for entire families and our friendly and knowledgeable team are there to help every step of the way.
Over the years, we've arranged for thousands of children and young people to meet their heroes, enjoy amazing experiences, visit special places and more. For some, a dream is simply to enjoy everyday activities so we're also happy to provide specialist items such as disability trikes, wheelchair swings, sensory equipment and technology.
