    Childhood Interstitial Lung Disease (ChILD) is a group of rare lung diseases where in simple terms oxygen has trouble crossing over into the blood stream. ChILD sufferers have very complex care needs and latest figures show that there are approx. 100 children in the UK with chILD. It is a chronic illness and in some instances it is even life-limiting.

    - Emotional and practical support via our website, forum, email and telephone.
    - Published educational materials approved by medical experts and help distribute these to families across the UK.
    - Offer grants for these families who may need financial assistance for practical items of care.
