Welcome to the Charlie & Carter Foundation

In memory of the Cookson Brothers

The Charlie & Carter Foundation (CCF) provides financial support to parents of seriously ill children with life limiting conditions that require 24 hour nursing care or specialist nursing facilities. We understand how difficult life can become when you have had to reduce your working hours or in fact leave your employment as your child requires 24 hour care.


The cookson brothers

The Charlie and Carter Foundation provides financial support to families with seriously ill children with life-limiting conditions was established in loving memory of the two beautiful Cookson brothers who both suffered from life-limiting conditions.

ccf family feedback


"The financial help and support is like something drop from heaven to us, which was very very good.

Thank you very much, we are speechless."

Milan & Durda

"Due to Marko's health problems we was unable to work for a long time now.

This financial help from CCF come in the right moment as our rent is really the highest payment we have every month.

Thank you very much for your help and every amount is more than welcome for people in such situation like we are."

Chris & Anouska

"Your financial help has ensured Dad can spend more time at the hospital. It has taken a huge amount of stress of our shoulders, also ensured my car is road worthy for all the travelling I do.

We are extremely grateful, the application was easy and very quick. Kimberly was beyond helpful and very friendly. It meant a lot to us that you guys took the time to come see us and meet Reggie, especially knowing how hard it was for Chris."


"The financial help and support enabled us to clear a lot of debt that has happened since Skylar has become ill. Our finances will ease now thanks to your help and taken so much worry from us

Great team and foundation."
