Action Medical Research is a little-known charity but has made a significant impact in its 68-year history by funding medical breakthroughs which have helped saved the lives of countless children and babies, including neonatal.
Many of us will know family members, relatives and friends who have been unknowingly helped by the work funded by Action Medical Research. These breakthroughs in medical research include the importance of folic acid during pregnancy to prevent spina bifida, the development in the use of ultrasound during pregnancy, a cooling cap therapy for premature babies which reduces the chance of brain damage and cerebral palsy by 50%, the discovery & implementation of the Polio vaccine thus eradicating it from the UK and thorough testing of the Rubella vaccine.

YOU ARE KEY TO US TAKING PART
Put simply, without your support we cannot make this dream a reality. Our objective is to involve sponsors and contribute £200,000 to Action Medical Research.
Since beginning in 1952, Action Medical Research has been funding medical breakthroughs to help save and change the lives of babies and children.
Surprisingly, medical research tackling childhood diseases is poorly funded in the UK. Action Medical Research has a critical job to do in helping fill this gap to protect children.
The prospects for finding new cures and treatments is almost within our grasp. Right now we are funding vital research projects with many more ready to go – but we simply can’t fund them all.
