How does recycling my car benefit children?

Your car donation helps to positively impact the lives of disadvantaged and disabled children in the UK. Little Lives UK aims to support children that are living with disabilities or are having to live in challenging environments due to a lack of resources, low family income, exclusion and other factors which negatively impact their lives. Our mission is to ensure that all children are given the opportunity and resources to reach their full potential in life.Recycling my car benefit childrenWe are able to tackle this with our 4 campaigns:

Our ‘Someone to talk to’ campaign offers children free private counselling sessions, funded by us, which reduces the strain on the NHS and gives children faster access to mental health support.

Our ‘Technology programme’ provides devices to disadvantaged children so that they can do their homework and connect with peers.

Via our ‘Sports Team Sponsorship’ we provide funding to youth sports teams to help them to purchase kits, equipment, and other related costs, so that every child can enjoy playing sports.

Finally, ‘Children’s Community Support’ encompasses a wide range of projects, which gives children access to free activities and classes that will make a huge benefit to their lives. We also work with communities that are at risk of its children becoming involved with crime, gang incorporation, county-lines drug dealing and violence. The funds received from recycling your car enables us to carry on this vital work and together we can help to provide a better and brighter future for children in the UK.
