Stronger Together – an Acorns film

You’ll never forget that moment… The diagnosis. Everything stops.

A parent never imagines their child will be diagnosed with a life limiting or life threatening condition. But when the unimaginable happens Acorns steps in. We are here to help families cope at every stage of their child’s life, and beyond.

Our new film ‘Stronger Together’ takes you on the moving journey of the children and families who inspire everything we do here at Acorns.

With your help, we can make sure these remarkable families never face this journey alone.

Together, we are stronger.
