  • Need


    it has been identified that many children & young people living in the UK are living in sever poverty and unsafe conditions. They are having to go without food on weekends and school holidays, they are being bullied on a daily basis due to being forced into an unkempt position.
    They are having to go to school without underwear on and clothing that is in a state of disrepair.


    We distribute packs that provide the basic essentials such as energy bars, underwear, personal hygiene resources and many more items.

    What success will look like

    Success will be measured by the increase in the children & young people's health and wellbeing

  • Impact


    We hope that the long term aim will help to relieve the poor situations that children & young people are forced into.


    By handing out resource bags, the recipients may be subject to bullying for accepting charity. We overcame this by ensuring that the bags have no identity on.
    The resources could be sold for drug/alcohol money. We have ensured that the items in the bags have little or no resale value.


    We will report by sending out annual reports of charity activities.
