Providing a steady supply of toys, games, arts & crafts materials and other resources is a key part of our work and while the items we provide may look like toys to the untrained eye, in the hands of professionals they are tools of the trade.
The Archie Toy Service equips Play staff with arts & crafts materials as well as toys and even guest entertainers.
We also provide resources to Allied Health Professional teams, which include Occupational Health, Speech & Language and Physiotherapists, to support them both within the hospital and at outreach clinics in the community.

It was back in 2017 that we first started funding thermometers for children diagnosed with cancer and we have continued this important service ever since. Nurses give these to parents to use at home, providing much-needed peace of mind.
Lily was born with a condition that affects her hands and so she can't use the brakes on a normal bike. The ARCHIE Foundation provided a bike with brakes that Lily can operate with her feet, and now she can go cycling with her friends. Her self-esteem and confidence has improved enormously. Thank you!
