Leave a gift in your will Help shape the futures of children all around London,
by ensuring that they can have a better future.

Why include Little Lives UK in your will?

Young children across London face enormous challenges that no child should have to deal with at their age. This is particularly the case for disadvantaged and disabled children. You can certainly help them reach their full potential through leaving a gift to Little Lives UK.

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.

In remembering Little Lives UK, you’re ensuring that our beneficial work for our young generation can continue, by allowing us to support vulnerable children for many years to come. We can provide much-needed stability to their lives, that will see them prosper in the long-term. We want to see children live care-free childhoods through their full and active participation in all aspects of life.

How we will use your will

When writing your will, you are presented with an opportunity to show support for young people who are in need. Your decision to leave a gift to Little Lives UK, no matter the size, is a brilliant way to support a cause you care about and will make a lasting difference. It may be that you experienced a challenging upbringing like so many children and want to help make an impact through your will.

We are very proud to be a community-centred charity that aims to build up children’s support groups. Through our ‘Children’s Community Support Programme’ we are allowing children in London to grow in confidence and becoming a bigger part of their communities. Your gift will directly help fund our continuous programmes to relieve child poverty and increase vulnerable children’s chances of a healthy and happy life.

Children's Community Support Programme

Children’s Community Support Programme

There are a significant number of organisations that are struggling financially, as a result of Coronavirus. Due to lockdowns, and social distancing children across London have been unable to access the services they used to. There will no doubt be long-term negative effects because of the pandemic, but Little Lives UK wants to guarantee that children’s services and activities are not one of them. Hence, we are launching our Children’s Community Support Programme. We’re offering to donate to London based organisations that work with children, who are in need of support during these challenging times.

‘Someone To Talk To’ mental health project

‘Someone To Talk To’ mental health project

Our ‘Someone To Talk To’ project will bring essential mental health services into schools in areas of London most in need. We’re funding free therapy sessions for children who are struggling with their mental health. Investing in the mental health of children and young people is key as half of all adult mental illness starts before a child reaches the age of 14 and 75% of lifetime mental health disorders have their first onset before 18 years of age. By building strong mental foundations and coping mechanisms in youth, children and young people’s outcomes are greatly improved, so it’s vital that we help our children now!
