Children’s Community Support Programme

Children’s Community Support Programme

We have launched our Children’s Community Support Programme, where we look to support organisations that work with children and provide activity sessions. Many children’s groups are struggling as a result of cuts to funding, so to ensure that these vital services can continue to be accessed, we are offering to help with a donation, that we hope will make a considerable difference to the amazing work that they do.

Someone To Talk To – Mental health project

Our ‘Someone To Talk To’ project will bring essential mental health services into schools where pupils are most in need. Working with the The Listening Ear, we’re funding therapy sessions for children who need support. Poor mental well-being amongst children increases the likelihood of antisocial behaviour, drug and alcohol misuse, and involvement in criminal activity in later life. It’s vital that we help our children now.

Technology Donations Programme

Technology Donations Programme

Despite the developments there have been in the technological world, there are still many children that don’t have access to any devices. In order to guarantee that children can acquire the right tools to learn, we have launched our technology programme. We will donate up to 25 electronic items per donation, to schools and other children’s organisations, which will enable the children access to the correct technology for learning.

Support

our work

We collect a variety of items from donations in London, all of which will hugely help 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, feel free to book a collection, and we’ll come and pick them up from your home for free.

You can support Little Lives UK by raising money through fundraising. Whether this be a small event in your community, school or workplace, we would appreciate any efforts in raising money for our projects. You can organise this yourselves, or you can find out some additional ways in which you can fundraise for us.

If you choose to leave Little Lives UK a gift in your will, you’re choosing to leave the perfect gift for many children, a bright future. Gifts in wills are fundamental for charities in the work they do, and we are certainly no exception, as ultimately your decision could be life-changing for many children.

Donating your old or unwanted electronic items can help to make a huge difference to the lives of children and their families. Your donated devices will be used as part of our Technology Programme and will go towards providing children in the UK with access to devices that will greatly help with their education.
