The ARCHIE Foundation is a key charity in the north of Scotland providing vital support and services for babies, children and families affected by illness.

Everything we do and offer is entirely funded by voluntary donations from amazing people like YOU. Thank you so much for taking on a challenge in aid of ARCHIE, your support will make the world of difference to so many people.

The ARCHIE Foundation was formed in 2000, to support the build of a new Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital, with a simple mission – to make the difference for local sick children. RACH opened in 2004 and since then ARCHIE has helped over one million children by funding vital “extras” to complement the excellent care provided by NHS Grampian. The charity has since gone on to extend its geographical reach and widen its range of services, becoming a key provider of vital support to families in the north of Scotland.

ARCHIE was instrumental in the creation of the Highland Children’s Unit, at Raigmore (Inverness), which opened in 2016, and the charity played a key role in funding the build of the Twin Operating Theatre which is scheduled to open at Ninewells (Dundee) in 2021.

Over the years ARCHIE’s remit has extended beyond its original mission to make the difference for local sick children and the charity is proud to now support babies, children and families both in sickness and for health.

In 2016 The ARCHIE Foundation joined forces with Friends of the neonatal Unit, a charity founded in 1984 which has been pivotal in funding the outstanding neonatal care provided at Aberdeen Maternity Hospital. In 2019 Grampian Child Bereavement Network joined ARCHIE’s family of funds, with the aim of ensuring that children who experience the loss of a loved one have access to the appropriate support to empower them to manage and process their grief.
