Making the Difference for sick children in Raigmore Hospital

The Archie Foundation (Highlands & Western Isles)

Find us on facebook!

The ARCHIE Foundation is a charity registered in scotland number sc039521. 01463 888258 or 01224 552055

We have volunteer opportunities available now! Can you help volunteer in our welcome desk in Raigmore, at an event or in one of our Inverness cafes? If so please get in touch now!

The ARCHIE Foundation's mission is to 'Make the Difference' for every child receiving healthcare in the North of Scotland. It might be through one of our nurses or play leaders. In the Highlands, we want to go further by building an entire Children's Unit!


Thanks to you, we've opened the new Highland Children's Unit! (Now we need your help to keep it amazing for local kids!)

The ARCHIE Foundation supports sick children and their families across the whole of the North of Scotland. ​In the Highlands this is predominantly in the new Highland Children's Unit. 

You can donate here on this page or find out how else you can support this important appeal for all of the Highlands children.



Have a coffee - make a difference

One great city, two great cafes!

The ARCHIE Foundation operates two cafes in Inverness with all profits from these cafes going direct to the Highland Children's Unit Appeal. 

Our cafe in the Hilton Community Centre is open to everyone and has a free-to-use soft play facility for pre-school children.  Our second cafe in the city is in the Eastgate Centre, next to Boots.

All of our activity in the Highlands is currently focused on raising £2m to help build the new Highlands Children's Unit. However, emergency support for families of seriously sick or injured children is available.
