This week is Small Charity Week, celebrating the achievements of the small charities who make a big impact.
Often we find that people are surprised to learn that Kidscape is a small charity. Despite the challenges of our size and income, we achieve phenomenal results. This year alone, we’ve empowered thousands of young people to recognise bullying behaviour and take action to stop it. We’ve had a hugely positive impact on children who are going through a bullying situation with 8 out of 10 seeing an improvement in their mental health, school and family life. We’ve helped hundreds of parents with practical support and guidance through our Parent Advice Line.
How do we do all of this with the very limited resources we have? We focus on what we’re best at: we help with bullying. We have decades of experience in what works, and a tiny team of paid staff with a deep understanding of bullying and a passion for helping those people who are affected by it. We never give up, even when times look tough.
We need your help
Bullying is more visible than ever and other charities operating in the sector have done a fantastic job in raising awareness, but rates of bullying have largely stayed the same and there are millions of children who are being bullied and need help now. We want to be there for them. To do this, we need your help. We rely on the generosity of people like you to carry out our life-changing work. We will be working directly with 7000 children and young people this year, and over 700 families, this means we need to raise £1,841 a day. We are grateful for any donation you choose to make, and we are grateful to every person who chooses to raise funds for Kidscape.
This Small Charity Week, will you take the choice to support Kidscape’s bullying awareness work with children and young people?
A donation of just £3 a month helps us reach and support children and young people who are going through bullying right now.
