I'm fundraising for a great cause!

Since we began in 1952, Action Medical Research has been funding medical breakthroughs to help save and change the lives of babies and children. It all started with the first polio vaccines in the UK, later helping to develop the use of ultrasound in pregnancy and the rubella vaccine - helping to save thousands of children’s lives and change many more. Now we are facing a new threat. We know that COVID-19 threatens us all in some way, including children, but we don’t know enough. Medical research is underway to help beat COVID-19 but there’s a lack of research specifically focusing on children and how the virus affects them. Parents are living in fear of the unknown with many unanswered questions that need tackling. Questions such as:

    • Why are some children more vulnerable to COVID-19 than others? 
    • How is the pandemic affecting my child's mental health?
    • How can I protect my child now, and from viruses like this in the future?
We believe that medical research can help find answers to protect children, but we need the funding. We receive no government funding for research so rely on voluntary support. We need to raise £1 million to fund vital medical research for children in the fight against COVID-19. Please help today so we can fund the scientists and doctors who can find the answers to these questions and protect our children and their future. 100% of your donation will go towards funding research in the fight against COVID-19.
