Charlie House was founded in 2011, with the goal of improving quality of life for babies, children and young people in the north east of Scotland who have life-limiting or life-threatening conditions and to provide support for their families. In 2018 we launched the Big Build Appeal to raise £8m to build a dedicated support centre in Aberdeen so that families don't need to travel over 100 miles to get the specialist support they need.

It can be difficult for families to make memories that they can treasure due to the fact that their children don't always receive a smooth transition from hospital to home, and practical and emotional support is not always available to them. Many families struggle to adapt to their ever-changing needs, which impacts every area of their life - and many find it hard to cope.
Set in four acres of land within Woodend Hospital in Aberdeen, the facility will enable children and their families to make precious memories together. The plans include state-of-the-art spaces including a sensory room, spa pool, craft room, soft play area and therapy room.

The eight bedroom facility will be open to families across the North East. It will offer parents and carers the chance to recharge their batteries, safe in the knowledge that their family can be together and their child's needs will be met by specially trained medical staff.
Charlie House is an Aberdeen based charity founded in 2011 by a local mum. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for babies, children and young people in North-east Scotland who have life-limiting or life-threatening conditions, and to provide support to their families.
More about us
The 8-bedroom will also offer parents and carers the chance to recharge their batteries, safe in the knowledge that their child will be in the care of specially trained medical staff. Crucially, the facility will have a dedicated private ‘Star room’ for families to spend precious time with their child after they have passed, treasure memories and receive visitors in a supported environment.
“…To have a place like Charlie House in the North-east would be fantastic, we currently have to travel to Kinross to access care and support for our son, there is no facility appropriate for his needs locally and it can be a real struggle to cope.”
