Right now, thousands of children are facing abuse, exploitation and struggles with their mental health. We are a national charity that works to transform the hopes and happiness of young people.
From providing specialist mental health support for children in crisis, to teaching young people how to stay safe online, we tackle their most serious life challenges. And we campaign tirelessly to create social change that will improve their lives.
Our goal is to create a society built for all children, where every young person feels alive with hope. And we won’t rest until we achieve this aim.
Last year, we directly supported thousands of children, but the demand for our services is greater than ever. That's why we're asking you to Give Hope by donating a gift to a young person today, so you can help a child feel happier, safer and more hopeful.
Before the pandemic hit, David loved spending time with his project worker Karen. He lived in a care home in a rural area, so his meetings with Karen and the arts and crafts activities they did together helped him to feel less alone.
When the country went into lockdown, David was cut off from this vital support. Thanks to Give Hope, Karen was able to supply David with brushes, paints and art books so they could continue their sessions together online.
This regular contact helped to strengthen their bond, lessened David's feelings of isolation and kept his hope alive throughout lockdown and beyond. He told us that art means a lot to him 'because it gets all your stress and emotions out'.
Your gift's impact
Pause is one of our mental health services where children can drop in at any time, to talk to us about what’s worrying them or struggles they’re going through, whether that be with their mental health or relationships or schoolwork.
Our trained project workers listen to children during one-to-one sessions, and teach them techniques to help manage their feelings and move forward.
The thoughtful presents that you donate help these children know that someone out there is thinking of them. When they receive one of your gifts – whether that’s books, self-care products or educational supplies - it gives them hope for a brighter future.
