Welcome to chILD UK

Supporting families affected by Childhood Interstitial Lung Disease.
We do this by raising awareness, working with medical professionals to create a better understanding of chILD and offer quality practical and emotional support.

What is ChILD?

A group of rare lung diseases found in infants, children and adolescents.
There are a large number of interstitial and diffuse diseases which fall under the chILD umbrella.

Get Involved

There’s lots of ways to get involved.
From volunteering to fundraising we appreciate all of the ways friends, families and ordinary members of the public get involved in raising funds and awareness for chILD.
