The Childhood Trust is London's child poverty charity. Our funding provides vulnerable and disadvantaged children with practical and emotional support through grassroots community projects. We believe every child should have a healthy, happy and safe childhood so that all children are well prepared for life. Your donations help to alleviate the impact of growing up in poverty and restore hope for the future.
Help children living in poverty access vital support
We are facing a national emergency. 800,000 children are living in poverty in London, that’s nearly 40% of all children in the capital. Many families are struggling with impossible choices - like deciding between going hungry or sitting in the cold and dark. Children are running out of hope as they have seen so much hardship already.
Last year our donors help to fund projects supporting 236,000 children. Each project works to alleviate the effects of child poverty on vulnerable children and young people. Along with providing over 300,000 meals and snacks, we also gave children safe places to play, one-to-one support and brilliant life-transforming opportunities.
Please donate now to help us reach even more children this year.
Every time we reach out to a child who is struggling we show them that they matter. Something every child needs to know.
