About Our Organisation
Children’s Health Foundation (CHF) is focused on raising funds to support the delivery of services for children’s and adolescent health needs in the new paediatric healthcare system in Ireland (CHI), including research and innovation, patient and parent support, infrastructure and equipment and any other health services associated with CHI.
The creation of Children’s Health Foundation in 2019 brought together the existing Temple Street Foundation and The Children’s Medical and Research Foundation Crumlin to continue to support Ireland’s sickest children in their treatment journey today, tomorrow and into the future.
This is an incredible opportunity to lead the team who raise vital, life-saving funds and support some 300,000 children and their families who attend CHI each year in need of world-class paediatric care; ensuring that patients have access to the very highest standards of care, world-class facilities and the most up-to-date research that will change young lives for the better.
