Our Story

Sweetpea Charity was founded by the parents of Milly in 2009. Milly was brain damaged at birth and as a result was profoundly disabled.

Following Milly’s death, aged nine in 2008, her parents set up The Sweetpea Charitable Trust to relieve sickness and preserve and protect the good health of children up to 18 years of age living in the United Kingdom. To ensure that children in similar situations to Milly could be supported and enabled to live life to the best of their abilities.

Sweetpea Charity continues to ensure that Milly’s parents’ wishes are followed through the many projects we support both financially and when working in partnership with other charities to share expertise to support disabled children.

Our vision is that all children living with disability enjoy positive experiences and achieve their potential.

It is Sweetpea’s mission to ensure that:

  • Children have the support and equipment they need – when they need it, and in the way that is most appropriate and accessible to them
