This year we have supported over 4,300 people and resolved 9,000 separate issues. 

We've made a big difference in the lives of these members, which means:

  • 85% of parents feel more confident to manage their child’s condition
  • 88% of the adult members have improved knowledge and understanding of their condition
  • 91% of the members have improved their health & wellbeing

This is only made possible thanks to the ongoing support from our community to raise the vital funds to pay for our support teams.

Many of our services are entirely funded through donations, gifts in wills, grants and corporate supporters so we're grateful for all the time and energy that everyone puts in to support Shine.

Can you help us to continue this valuable work into 2024?

Any donation or fundraising you can do, big or small, will be greatly appreciated.

Just £30 will help us provide specialist support to those who need it.


You can support Shine any way you want this Christmas.
