London, Tuesday 11 June: CryptoUK, the leading trade body representing the digital asset sector in the UK, is thrilled to announce a partnership with Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity. This collaboration seeks to raise awareness and funds to support the charity’s essential work establishing specialist nurses to provide vital support to seriously ill children across the UK.

This partnership officially began on International Nurses’ Day, serving as a tribute to the exceptional Roald Dahl Nurses and their remarkable efforts and impact. These nurse specialists provide comprehensive, expert care to children with multiple and complex health conditions every day, making a significant difference in the lives of families across the nation.

CryptoUK and Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity are joining forces to raise awareness of the challenges faced by seriously ill children and the dedicated, life-changing support of the Roald Dahl Nurses caring for them. The two organisations will be collaborating to engage the cryptoasset sector and wider ecosystem, and exploring innovative ways the industry can help support the third sector.

With the help of the hard-working Roald Dahl Nurses, the charity provides expert medical and emotional support, helping to improve the quality of life of seriously ill children and their families. The collaboration aims to raise awareness of, and funds for, the charity to establish more Roald Dahl Nurses to make a difference in the lives of those who need it most.

Louise Griew, Chief Executive of Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity, expressed her enthusiasm for the partnership, stating: “We are delighted to have been selected as the charity partner of CryptoUK and look forward to building a strong, collaborative partnership that will help us to raise awareness and vital funds to establish more Roald Dahl Nurses to care for seriously ill children.” 

“These children have multiple and complex health conditions, and our Roald Dahl Nurses are invaluable to them and their families, coordinating care, reducing waiting times, A&E visits and hospital admissions. We believe all these children deserve a Roald Dahl Nurse and we hope this partnership will encourage more of those in the crypto world to support us.”

CryptoUK’s Executive Director Su Carpenter said: “CryptoUK is so pleased to announce the partnership with Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity. Together, we’re dedicated to providing essential support to seriously ill children and this collaboration, which launched on International Nurses’ Day, is a heartfelt tribute to the exceptional Roald Dahl Nurses and their extraordinary dedication. The nurses play a vital role in making a profound impact on families nationwide. We’re honoured to be part of this meaningful initiative.”

About Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity

Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity provides specialist nurses and support for seriously ill children.

There are currently over 150 Roald Dahl Nurses caring for more than 36,000 seriously ill children, but there are still too many children with serious illnesses who do not receive this vital specialist care.

We understand how immensely difficult being diagnosed with a serious illness is for a child and their whole family. It is uncertain, overwhelming, scary, and deeply unfair. It can be isolating and takes over your whole life. Navigating this challenging and complex world can be daunting, particularly when an initial diagnosis is made. And that is where our marvellous Roald Dahl Nurses come in – ensuring that seriously ill children no longer have to brave their illnesses alone.

Roald Dahl Nurses are trained and dedicated experts in their field. They are a consistent presence in the child’s life from initial diagnosis through to the child’s transition to adult services. They advise, they reassure, and they become an extended part of the family.

The dedication and expertise of our nurses reduces A&E visits, hospital admissions and consultant appointments. They’re also a vital lifeline to the whole family, coordinating care and providing access to high quality emotional support.

That’s why we believe every seriously ill child deserves a Roald Dahl Nurse.
