Refer a Child


How do I refer a child?

The Smiley Riley Fund accepts referrals for potential children from parents or guardians, medical professionals – or even the children themselves.

What are our criteria?

A child needs to be a UK resident, aged between 0 – 16 years of age, fighting a life-threatening condition.

Please remember to have the Medical Release form signed – this will allow us to write to the child’s Consultant as soon as possible, in order to establish medical eligibility. When you have signed it, please put it in an envelope and return it to:

Address: The Smiley Riley Fund
33 Rydal Avenue, York, YO31 0LS
Phone: 07818 506 476
Registered Charity No. 1149757

What happens next?
After confirming the child has a life-threatening condition, we will send a short form to the family asking for further information about the wish child. Once we have this form back we will arrange for our specially-trained volunteers to visit the child to find out what their wish is.
