OUR MISSION, VISION AND VALUES
Red Sky Foundation’s mission is to improve the lives of people needing cardiac care who are born with or develop heart conditions by providing lifelong support to them and their families. We do this by providing a range of services to relieve sickness and preserve the health of individuals in the UK. We assist with the provision of grants, equipment and awareness to support the world class Childrens Heart Unit at The Freeman Hospital in Newcastle, other cardiac hospital units and we also support other regional health services within the NHS and other charitable organisations.
Red Sky Foundation provides life-saving defibrillators for local school and public spaces, working with local education and council representatives. We collaborate with third party organisations to offer a range of training and education from defibrillator use and CPR through to advanced support for babies, children and adults with heart problems and their families.
Red Sky Foundation’s aim is to provide top-up support over and above the current NHS funding and to collaborate with key partners to assist babies, children and their families from the moment they need the specialist care to mend poorly hearts. We work very closely with medical staff and other organisations to ensure Red Sky Foundation’s support is targeted to where it is most needed. Our Foundation has bought vital equipment (for example heart scanners, transplant machines and public accesible defibrillators) and contributes funds towards other cardiac related projects.
Working in partnership with many individuals, workplaces schools, community groups and corporate supporters, Red Sky Foundation maximises fundraising at their events which include the Red Sky Ball gala dinner, White Party and other various fundraising challenges throughout the year which not only raise funds but allows our strategic partners, corporate sponsors, supporters and NHS cardiac teams and heart families to come together and enjoy themselves.
The vision of Red Sky Foundation is for babies, children and their families to benefit from our amazing work and to encourage supporters to join #TEAMREDSKY and help to raise funds on our behalf so they are able to see the direct results from what they have achieved. Our goal is to also realise a vision that defibrillators will be available and accessible for those who require life-saving treatment for in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest in public and community areas 24 hours a day. For Red Sky Foundation, our patrons, trustees, volunteers and supporters the shared vision is equally true as they use their time and skills in knowing the benefits they can bring to those who need it most.
We get to meet and help children and adults that have successfully adapted to difficult or challenging life experiences – absolute superheroes!
