About Us

Being told your child has cancer or a life-challenging condition is devastating. Day-to-day life is turned upside down, and many families feel unable to cope. 

Momentum Children's Charity is there to support the entire family during times of unimaginable strain – the children and their parents, but also siblings and grandparents.

Our Family Support Workers offer tailored practical and emotional help to the entire family, through our unique support programme at home and in hospital, which includes therapy services, counselling, holidays and experiences.  We improve the environment for children treated in local hospitals, with our children’s ward refurbishments. 

At any one time we support around 240 families whose children are in treatment and a further 100 bereaved families, across SW London, Surrey and Sussex. We believe no family should have to cope alone and we’re there at every step, forever.

Momentum Children's Charity was founded in 2004 and the charity has an office in East Molesey, opposite Hampton Court station.
