The Children’s Society
Through collection boxes we raise money for vulnerable children and young people – if you’d like to have a box please contact the church office.
Each year, The Children’s Society raise approximately £2 million from a dedicated network of box coordinators and box holders. This income is vital to support their work with vulnerable children and young people in your local community and across the country.
“The Children’s Society wants to create a world where all children and young people are respected, valued and heard. We believe that childhood should be happy and that young people deserve to reach their full potential.
That’s why we work hard to transform the lives of thousands of children and young people in England each year.
Our priority is children who have nowhere else to turn. We protect young runaways from the dangers of life on the street. We give disabled children a voice and more control over their lives. Our work helps young refugees start afresh in new communities, and gives young carers time and energy to enjoy their childhood.
With over 77 programmes and children’s centres throughout England, we offer care, respite, legal support and mentoring schemes that help turn lives around.
Through our campaigns and research, we seek to influence policy and perceptions at all levels so young people have a better chance in life.
Our approach is driven by the Christian values that inspired the charity’s founders in 1881, and by the voices of children and young people who are at the heart of all we do. We want to build a better childhood for every child.”
