Cause Description

At Helium Arts we believe creativity changes lives. We support children with serious illnesses to let their creativity shine. Our creative projects provide much-needed distraction and relief from the loneliness and sadness caused by illness. In turn, children are in control of creating joyful experiences and happy memories. Our programmes take place in hospital and community settings across Ireland.


Since 2009, over 2,000 children and their families have experienced the power of creativity through one of Helium Arts’ programmes in 11 counties across Ireland.
