Just one thingSo here’s the issue. There are a staggering 3.6 million children & young people living in poverty in the UK. 1.6 million of whom live in extreme poverty.

The positive news is that Kids Company has proven children CAN be helped and nurtured to find their true talents and aspire to achieve.

Just pledge your help here right now – be as creative and innovative as you wish!  You may be:

  • A budding artist and can create a painting for a child’s bedroom
  • A trained lawyer and can offer your time
  • An employee of an organization that could offer training for mothers or young people
  • An entrepreneur who may come up with an idea which may help address the issues associated with UK poverty
