We take application form schools, health visitors, social workers, projects and charities working with children, who have found themselves in crisis during the Coronavirus pandemic and need help to pay for food, fuel and activities for their children.
Families living in crisis at this time, who are already living in poverty and found things even hard during this period when their children are home all day and bills are mounting up. We have also supported group who work with children with additional support needs in providing sensory equipment and care boxes to send out to them and help with activities and sensory deprivation. We have also supported groups to provide educational activities and supplies to enable children to do schoolwork from home.
We have provided £35 per children and the applicants then purchase, food parcels, food vouchers, toiletries or top up fuel cards and give them to the families they have identified as in need of assistance.
2,755 children so far
£35 grants to over 285 children
Demand is still extremely high and I have had to close to applications as I cannot meet the need as our funds have run out. I have applied again to your Trust in the hope that I can continue to support local families.
Any gift you can make, large or small, can have a huge impact on the lives of many. Businesses, associations and private individuals are being urged to support this appeal and donate whatever they can now.Donate
