Every day, thousands of young people in our country live with the effects of poverty, neglect and violence at home. In danger and alone, these children have few people - if any - they can trust. For many, going missing from home seems like the only option.
Through our work, we know that many of these young people are quietly desperate for some help. We don’t wait for them to come to us - we reach out to them. We offer things every child deserves: safety, comfort and hope for a brighter future.
It might just be the first time in a long time anyone has asked what's wrong and would they like help. We build a trusting relationship and provide the help they need to turn their lives around for the better.
The £100 you raise by completing the Reach Out 100 challenge is enough to for us to reach out to one child. But if the £100,000 target for all our Collection for Children events can be achieved, that would be enough to help 1000 children.
