The Community Change Company CIC is an organisation based in Newark that helps those in the community who are in need of vital support that so often is not funded or available for everyone. They are piloting a group run by sibling of children with additional needs. The siblings know their brothers and sisters better than anyone and can really help to guide service providers in the right direction when it comes to understanding what is best for them and their family.
We have all seen the adverts on the TV and on social media and in blogs, how ironic, telling us to leave a gift in our wills to a charity or to some other good cause. A lot of people reading may even be too young to be thinking about leaving wills, but it is always good to have the information at hand if you ever decide you would like to.
Find out about what each day brings to a children’s charity. From the planning social media campaigns working with volunteers to the accounts SEO specialisation and admin. A children’s charity is busier than it looks and the huge effort from a charity team makes all the good work in the community carried out by children’s charities possible. There is so much behind the scenes work to a children’s charity that makes each event and donation run seamlessly.
Anywhere you go around London, from the glitziest neighbourhood to the more subtle and modest neighbourhood, you will see the humble British charity shop. They have been on our streets for years and make up a staple part of any town. Some people may moan about that there is nothing but charity shops on the UK’s highstreets but, they serve some of the greatest purposes in the country. They also help more than just the charity on the sign above the door.
We are going to use any amount of prize funding we receive to further the campaigns we run. Our Children’s Community Support programme and Someone To Talk To campaign will be the beneficiaries, and with hope we will be able to help even more children each month with activities that help to alleviate social exclusion and provide free mental health counselling sessions.
It is coming, we never thought it would be back, but it is nearly here, our annual week or two of good weather! We were all teased with 5 or 6 days of sunshine just a week ago, only to be plunged back to cloud and cold this week, but don’t fear soon it will be sunny again.

The Sylvia Beaufoy Centre in Petworth is a youth centre that gives the opportunity for children of the area to have a place to learn new skills, socialise and escape the sense of isolation that can often be felt by young people who live in the countryside. Even though Petworth has been described as one of the most desirable places to live, the transport links for young people are sporadic, which means it is hard for them to visit the bigger towns nearby.
Without your support we would not have been able to donate so much to the organisations that directly benefit the lives of children around the UK. We would not have been able to provide free counselling for children who are in need of mental health coaching. And, we would not have been able to donate so many pieces of technology to children who need it for their education.
In the UK alone, nearly 400,000 children don’t have access to books or a book of their own. Reading is so vital for the development of children’s creativity and development of their literacy skills. Through the National Literacy Trust, 54 thousand books have been donated by publishers to children who are least likely to have read books. 1 in 5 children receiving free school meals said they bought their first book with a World Book Day token.
