There are lots of different charities and organisations which offer wishes and experiences to those living with a complex health need.
Please note that many of these charities will ask you if you have already received a Wish from another organisation. This is to ensure that funds are used fairly and that as many people as possible are able to be granted a magical experience. You may want to think carefully about the timing of your application. Spend some time researching what opportunities are on offer.
You are strongly advised to check the suitability of these organisations before you provide any personal, medical, or financial information.
