About us

Dr Sara Mole_002Sparks raises money to fund pioneering children’s medical research. 1 in 30 children in the UK is born every day with a condition that may affect them for life.

Sparks supports clinicians and scientists who have the skills, innovation and passion to improve children’s lives forever. Since 1991, we have funded more than 275 ground-breaking research projects in over 80 hospitals, universities and research institutions across the UK and overseas. Each new project is carefully reviewed by both medical professionals and a panel of parents. This ensures that we are funding high quality science as well as investing in those projects most likely to have a benefit for children and families across the UK and beyond. Every child matters – that’s why we support research into any medical condition affecting children’s health, from rare diseases to the most common illnesses
