Why we need your help


35,000 children and young people. This is the number of children and young people we have worked with the past 10 years, most of them living in challenging circumstances or experiencing hardship in life.

We want to continue to make a difference to the lives of children & young people and we will need your help to achieve this. In the current economic climate funding has become more and more difficult to secure so every penny really does matter. We have a track record of successful projects, established networks and we work with a great group of professional workshop leaders. We just need the funds to ensure we can continue our valuable work.

Children & young people are the future.

Please invest in them.

Your investment will make a difference.
