who we support

We are here for everyone

Camp Simcha exists to make a difference to all Jewish children and their families across the spectrum of Jewish observance

Seriously ill children

We currently help children with over over 50 different conditions that are life-limiting, life-threatening or life changing. These include but are not limited to; degenerative or congenital conditions; all types of cancer; chronic conditions such as Diabetes and IBD and serious mental health conditions.
We also offer short-term support to families with premature babies or where a child has had serious surgery or suffered acute trauma, such as accidents or illnesses resulting in hospitalisation.

When a child has a serious illness, the lives of their whole family will be turned upside down. We are here to try and bring back some normality to all of their lives through our practical emotional and therapeutic support services, as well as our parties, outings and events – designed to bring some light at the darkest times.

If you would like to discuss the possibility of receiving any of our services, or know of a family who could benefit from our services, please get in touch here or fill out the form below in complete confidence and we will get back to you as quickly as possible.
One of our team always comes to visit the family in person to discuss how we can help.

    If we have had a significant stay at hospital and exhaustion has kicked in, our Family Liaison Officer will organise some food, making our first evening home more bearable. Although this appears a small gesture on paper, it means so much to us as a family, that Camp Simcha is able to provide that little bit of respite at the end of a difficult few days. It’s just a relief when someone else takes the pressure off or does the practical stuff for you.
