It’s not fair that more than one in four children in the UK live in poverty.
More and more children are going hungry, without a bed to get a restful night sleep, or a warm home. Families who were once forced to choose between feeding their children or heating their homes can no longer afford either. This Christmas time we need your help to ensure families can go to sleep in warm beds with full stomachs.
Right now, the families we support are struggling more than ever before. Even a small donation from you can make a big difference to children living without stable access to food or warmth.

Together, we're helping families in financial hardship
With your donation, we can help children living in poverty at Christmas and beyond. Our frontline staff will be helping struggling children and families by providing them with emergency support such as beds, access to food, and support with their mental wellbeing.
We also provide ongoing support by helping to find suitable accommodation, and empowering families with access to longer term financial advice to set them up for a better future.
Through our influencing work, we’re standing up for every child with no bed of their own by calling on governments across the UK to ensure no child grows up in poverty.
In the last year our crisis support has helped more than 13,000 children and 7,200 families.
Work in partnership with us
We are calling on businesses across the UK to partner with us in addressing child poverty. Arun Estate Agencies Ltd. and their colleagues at Cubitt & West, Douglas Allen, Pittis and Wards have raised £1 million to help us provide essential support to children in South East England this winter.
