Children’s Community Support Programme
We run our Children’s Community Support Programme to help provide activities that benefit the lives of children around the UK. Many vital services, clubs and groups have faced cuts in recent years and we want to help provide these much-needed activities to children for free. We hope that by working with community groups and other organisations, we can make a difference in children’s lives.
Someone To Talk To
Poor mental health in children and young people can be a huge influence on the way that they lead their lives. With long waiting lists for mental health services and a record number of young people reporting mental health concerns, more needs to be done to address the lack of accessible mental health services. We work with and provide funding to our partner counselling service, ReWellness, to provide free courses of counselling and therapy to children in the UK who otherwise would not be able to access it.
Technology plays a huge part in children’s and young people’s lives and ever increasingly in their education. There are still thousands of children in the UK who do not have access to the right technology to continue their learning, potentially meaning that through no fault of their own, they will fall behind their peers. Through donations from our free electronics collection service, we provide the needed technology to children around the UK who require it and help to create equal educational opportunities.
Sports Team Sponsorship
Millions of children have a dream of being the next big sport superstar but unfortunately due to the costs of kit, equipment and membership fees, so many children cannot even participate in the sport they love. Sport and physical exercise are vital for children’s socialisation, mental health and physical health. We provide kit sponsorship and membership sponsorship for sports teams and clubs around the UK to ensure that all children have equal opportunities to get involved in a sport they love.
How you can help
We collect a huge variety of items in the form of donations in London and Bournemouth, all of which hugely helps our efforts in supporting disabled and disadvantaged children across the UK. If you have any unwanted clothes, shoes, books or toys that you no longer use or want, book a free collection and we’ll come and pick them up from your home or place of work.
Whether you want to participate in a solo fundraiser or want to plan a larger fundraising event in your community or with your work colleagues, every fundraiser means so much to us and the children we support. Either plan a fundraiser for Little Lives UK yourself or get in touch to discuss some ideas on how to fundraise for us.
Leaving a gift in your will to Little Lives UK is leaving a gift for the future. A gift in your will helps to provide a bright future for children by giving them the happy, healthy and fun childhood that all children deserve. Gifts in wills are fundamental to all charities and we are no exception, if you choose to leave a gift to us, your decision will be life changing for so many children.
Donating your old or unwanted electronic items can make a huge difference to so many children and their families. Book a free electronics collection in Bournemouth and London to donate. When you donate your unwanted electronics, you are helping to support our Technology Programme. Your donations will support children with continuing their education by helping them gain access to needed technology.
