Since 1986 Make-A-Wish has granted over 10,000 wishes.
In 2016 Make-A-Wish hopes to grant 1,350 wishes to children fighting life-threatening conditions
There are around 20,000 children and young people living in the UK with a life-threatening condition. Make-A-Wish believes every one of them deserves the magic of a Make-A-Wish wish.
87% of families told us that the wish added to the child’s quality of life*
76% of families told us that the wish gave their child a stronger sense of well-being*
42% of families told us that the wish improved their child’s physical mobility*
*Wish Family Survey 2014
What makes Make-A-Wish different
Our wishes are special as every wish we grant is individually tailored to the child. Our wishes always include the family living with the wish child – meaning that over 4000 people a year are touched by a wish and are given some respite from the daily effects of the child’s condition.
Other ways to support
