For many of our vulnerable children, summer is no holiday; it can be a living nightmare. Six weeks away from the protection and support of school can be terrifying. Facing an increased risk of neglect and abuse during the long holiday, vulnerable children are often forced to seek protection in street gangs, where they find a misplaced sense of belonging and family.
Kids Company’s Summer Residential Programme offers support during the summer holidays, providing summer camps and day trips to engage children with fun, educational and confidence building activities.
We’ve launched our Safe Summer appeal with matched funding initiative The Childhood Trust Summer Give, where each individual donation under £5,000 could be DOUBLED thanks to The Childhood Trust. Please spread the word to your readers to donate to Kids Company via the Big Give website from midday on 1st June, when the funding is released, to help us reach our £80,000 target by the 5th June! With you and your trusted readership, let’s make a big difference to these children’s lives!
