The Beads of Courage UK programme offers support and strength to families when they need it most.
In 2019, 9 million beads were delivered to roughly 9,000 children in over 100 hospitals across the country. Our grant has also enabled training sessions to hospital staff on how to support individual patients throughout the programme both practically and emotionally. Beads of Courage UK staff travelled over 10,000 miles to deliver training in 2019.
