The Eden Dora Trust for Children with Encephalitis
A charity created by two sets of parents who had children with childhood cancer who fell through the funding gap of support from their local authority and the NHS. The charity was created to help through four themes of support, two to support positive mental health and two financial grants to support children and their families. The mental health support encompasses one to one counselling and play therapies at our specialist centre in Halifax for children 6-17. Respite breaks are also available at one of the charity’s two holiday homes in Skegness. Financial support is available for children in hospital for a prolonged period through our Hospital Stay Grant, a one of award to help cover petrol, parking and extras such as comics, magazines, arts and crafts for the child while an in-patient. Our 50:50 Grant helps to cover half the cost of medical equipment and therapies. All support options are subject to the charity’s terms and conditions and subject to final approval of awards from the Trustees, except counselling and play therapies which is discussed through a free initial assessment.
