in London who are disabled or disadvantaged.

Home » About us » Who we are

Little Lives UK was founded to identify problems within our community and develop grassroots projects to tackle them, working alongside our community, rather than imposing strategies onto them. Creating a personal connection with the families and children we help, giving them agency and empowering them for a bright future. This makes the outcomes of our projects sustainable, inclusive, and positive; this is what is truly priceless to us.

Who we are

Little Lives UK are a London based charity whose primary focus is to help children in London who are disabled or disadvantaged. We provide support and opportunities to children that are facing many challenges in their young age and are in need of support. We identify problems within our community and establish grassroot projects to tackle them. Creating personal connections with the families and children we help is truly priceless to us.

Our history

Little Lives UK was founded in 2017 to support disabled, disadvantaged and vulnerable children across London. Since our launch, we have organised over twenty-seven grassroots projects. These cover a broad range of issues including; providing specialist health equipment to families for children with disabilities, holistic services for children’s hospices and funding after school sports activities. These campaigns have enabled us to build strong and trusting relationships with our community.

What we do

We support children and organisations that offer activities and outreach support. Little Lives UK raises funds which ensures that the children we help are provided the opportunity to develop the skills and confidence to participate within their community. We operate three stores across London, and work within our communities to achieve our goals in making a significant difference to the children who live within the city. 

Our mission

Our mission is to ease the stresses felt by children and those caring for them by enabling them to reach their full potential. In supporting children and young people, we aim to allow them to be carefree, which we hope will see them prosper into responsible, safe and happy adults. Ultimately our intentions are to break the cycle of child poverty and suffering in London.

Little Lives UK primarily operates through our three stores in Raynes Park, Tooting, and Fulham. These stores are at the core of our charity. Not only do they provide us with funds from the donations we receive they also provide vital opportunities to interact with our community. We regularly work in conjunction with local communities and other charities, to implement the best possible services. This ensures that we can provide the highest possible standards of support and care to any child who needs it.
