What is Kidsmas?  

Kidsmas is our way to help every child feel part of the fun at Christmas.  

Christmas is a wonderfully magical time for children – whether it’s writing to Santa, putting out carrots for flying reindeer or wrapping up warm for a snowball fight with friends. Whilst most of us look forward to festive rituals and quality time with our families, too many children and young people feel left out – because of poverty, mental health issues or their family circumstances. 

We’re asking people across the country to come together with families, friends and communities to raise vital funds to ensure vulnerable children feel part of a happy, safe and caring Christmas – and can access that support all year round.
