Coronavirus is affecting our most vulnerable children and families. 

We can help them.

We’ve adapted our work to manage the uncertainty we all face. However, fewer children and families can safely come to our after-school or join in our parent support groups. Youth clubs are closed.  Like you, we worry for those that online schooling will never fully reach. Its clear that the longer this lasts, the greater the harm this generation will experience. To many children, young people and families, we’re often the help that really matters. We are by their side, whatever challenges are thrown up in their way. It’s what’s woven us into the heart of our community for nearly 50 years. We’d like you to stand with us.

A joy shared is joy doubled

We always appreciate your one-off donations. But at this time, a monthly donation ensures that we have what we need to support our vulnerable families and children through this crisis. 

We have learned we can build a kinder, more resourceful community when we all work together. If we can look out for each other, we can prevent this crisis from becoming a disaster. With your help, we can safeguard our neighbours most at risk.

What happens next depends on you.
