Our Santas are changing lives…

This year, vulnerable children in the UK need a Secret Santa more than ever.

Coronavirus has had a devastating impact on their lives. Even before the crisis millions of families were struggling. Now many are at breaking point.

More than 4 million children in the UK are locked in poverty. That’s the equivalent of nine children in every school class of 30. And families are struggling to afford the basics, like food and clothes.

Last year, people like you helped us reach 368,648 children, young people and families in the UK.

Thousands of wonderful supporters made a life-changing difference in so many ways. Their generosity meant our frontline key workers could help struggling families to pay for the essentials, like food, warm clothes and a safe place to sleep. They helped us to protect children living in the shadow of domestic abuse and supported those with caring responsibilities. They also supported young people with their mental health and provided short breaks for disabled children.

More children are now safe and happy. We couldn’t do this without people like you.
