Our official charity partner

The Children’s Society

The charity has been changing the lives of vulnerable young people in the UK, for over 130 years. It runs over 100 services across the country, that help children who are suffering from poverty, abuse and neglect and campaigns to make life happier and safer. Last year it worked directly with over 18,000 young people and contributed to over five million positive changes in children’s lives.

Right now there are still hundreds of thousands of children in the UK who are:

  • Forced to run away from home or care because of abuse or neglect
  • At risk of, or experiencing, child sexual exploitation or abuse
  • Affected by substance misuse
  • Struggling to look after a sick or disabled parent by themselves
  • Refugees and migrants
  • In-care or leaving care
  • Experiencing mental health issues and issues surrounding emotional well-being
