Donating to the Eden Dora Trust

The Eden Dora Trust is the only charity in England specifically for children with Encephalitis.

But, we do not only support children and families affected by Encephalitis – we also support those affected by Childhood Acquired Brain Injuries.

We want to ensure no one faces this lifechanging, devastating illness alone. We receive no funding from the Government to help pay for our essential support services. We need your help right now more than ever to raise the funds we need to continue our vital work across the UK.

Please help support us: You can make a one-off or regular recurring donation, or even set up your own fundraising pages which you can manage and share online, using any of the links to the right of this page.

Every donation, no matter how large or small, makes an incredible difference. By donating, you’re helping us continue to fund the research, training, and campaigns which act as a lifeline for so many children and their families across the UK. From all of us, and all of them, we Thank You.
