Narcolepsy is a rare neurological condition that affects the brain's ability to regulate the normal sleep-wake cycle. Narcolepsy is estimated to affect about 1 person in 2,500. That means that in the UK there are approximately 30,000 people who have narcolepsy, though it is believed that the majority have not been diagnosed.

Normal sleep takes the form of a regular pattern of REM (Rapid Eye Movement) and non-REM stages. During a fully night's sleep, every 90 minutes or so a normal sleeper experiences several minutes of REM sleep, during which dreaming occurs, before switching back to non-REM sleep.

• £9 could fund one minute of a North West Air Ambulance mission.
• £250 could supply a primary response bag that carries the drugs and medical equipment our medical team needs to treat patients in major trauma incidents.
• £2000 could fund a year's supply of foil medical blankets, designed to retain body heat for patients in shock.

Suicide is the biggest killer of young people – male and female – under 35 in the UK. In 2016, 1,666 young people took their own lives. That equates to over four per day. Every year many thousands more attempt or contemplate suicide, harm themselves or suffer alone, afraid to speak openly about how they are feeling.

We draw from the experience of many who have been touched personally by young suicide across the UK and speak on their behalf in our campaigns and in our endeavours to save young lives. Together we believe that with appropriate support and education, many young suicides can be prevented.
We deliver awareness and prevention training, provide confidential support and suicide intervention through HOPELineUK, campaign and influence national policy, and empower young people to lead suicide prevention activities in their own communities.
Here are some of our core beliefs:
PAPYRUS believes that many young suicides are preventable
PAPYRUS believes that no young person should suffer alone with thoughts or feelings of hopelessness
PAPYRUS believes that no one should have to go through the heartbreak of losing a loved one to suicide
PAPYRUS believes that everyone can play a role in preventing young suicide

Ronald McDonald House Charities

At Ronald McDonald House Charities we provide free ‘home away from home’ accommodation at specialist children's hospitals across the UK, enabling families to stay close to their child and maintain a degree of normal family life. We support families while their child receives care and treatment in a specialist children's hospital by giving them a warm and welcoming place to rest their heads, just a moment away from their child. For the past 30 years we have helped tens of thousands of families during some of the toughest periods in their lives.

When a child is in hospital their family can often be faced with having to travel long distances each day and either pay for costly hotel rooms or sleep on a chair at their bedside. Our Houses provide our families with a comfortable place to stay that's close to their child, giving them more time and energy to focus on being together.

There are currently 12 Ronald McDonald Houses across the UK, all just moments away from their respective children's wards, with plans for further developments well under-way. Our dedicated teams of staff and volunteers welcome families to stay for days, weeks and even years, and help them to feel as at home as possible.

As an independent charity, we rely on the support and generosity of our volunteers, fundraisers and donors, and thanks to their tireless efforts the Houses are able to help over 8,000 families each year. It is our mission to ensure we have sufficient funds and expertise to develop and sustain free accommodation at every specialist children’s hospital in the UK. This will allow us to help thousands more families stay together, while their child is in hospital, in the years to come.
