Kayleigh’s Wee Stars works closely with a number of care professionals, in particular CHAS and the CLIC Sargent Social workers from Scottish Hospitals. Application forms are downloaded from the website, completed on behalf of the family and posted or emailed to the charity. Applications for support are discussed as soon as we receive them and we are able to transfer funds to the family the same day. The amount donated differs each time and depends on the family’s circumstances.
The charity receives on average 4 applications for support a month and up to October 2020 have donated £700,000 in total to families in need. The applications continue to come in and every bit of support is vital.
