Lifeline 4 kids are a UK National children's charity established in 1961. Originally known as The Handicapped Children's Aid Committee, in 2000 their working name changed to Lifeline 4 Kids. Their members work on an entirely voluntary basis and they have no paid staff. Their administration costs are less than 1% of income. This is unique in today's age of charities with high administrative overheads.

They were formed for one purpose -- to provide essential equipment to help improve the quality of life for children with disabilities and special needs irrespective of race or creed.

  • Schools, children's hospices, respite care homes and support centres throughout the UK receive their help with equipment including playground equipment, soft play and multi-sensory rooms and special beds.
  • For the individual child they provide the full spectrum of specialised equipment such as electric wheelchairs, mobility aids and varying items including specialised computers eg: iPads and specialist toys.
  • They are able to give emergency and welfare appeals immediate approval within the authorised limits of their welfare sub-committee.
  • Please note that they do not provide funding for building or garden works, fridges or cookers.
  • They also help equip hospital neonatal units with the latest incubators, infusion pumps and ultrasonic monitors amongst other life saving equipment.
  • No appeal is too large or too small for them to consider.
