Welcome to Give Hope, a fundraising initiative run by The Children’s Society.
Right now, thousands of children are facing abuse, exploitation and struggles with their mental health. The Children's Society 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.
Naomi was living independently and had always been able to manage her finances. But when the cost of living crisis hit she found herself struggling to afford the essentials.
She didn’t know what to do. She felt embarrassed that she wasn’t able to manage, but she needed help. In desperation, Naomi turned to her support worker at The Children’s Society. Thanks to Give Hope, Naomi’s support worker helped her access an essential food and basics voucher. And Naomi was able to feed herself for a month.
Naomi told us that “thanks to The Children’s Society and specifically the Give Hope fund, I was able to get my issue resolved. I worry for the people who do not know or cannot access charities like The Children’s Society or those who’s applications for support are being rejected by other organisations.”
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.
