The i Newspaper Christmas Appeal for Become
We’re proud to be the i Newspaper’s 2023 Christmas Appeal charity. Please donate and together we can ensure children in care and care-experienced young people receive the love, stability and support they urgently need.
There are over 100,000 children and young people in care today in the UK
Our vision is that everyone who spends time in care has an equal chance to lead a happy and fulfilling life.
The care system has the potential to change a child’s life for the better but at the moment it’s failing too many. Behind the statistics are young people who don’t have the support and guidance everyone needs to realise their potential.
“After leaving care, I felt really isolated and lonely. I was thrown into the world on my own and no-one cared about me.”
By supporting our work you are helping to ensure that there’s someone at the end of the phone when a young person calls for help, that there is a community they can join, and that the voices of care-experienced young people are amplified and united to bring about the change they want to see in and around the care system.
Help young care-experienced people your way
There are so many ways to give. Whether you make a donation, participate in an event or raise awareness, you can make a huge difference to the lives of young care experienced people.
Hundreds of people are committing together to make a better society for care-experienced young people.
