Please help support our special appeal

Here at The Children’s Trust, we care for children with severe brain injury and neurodisability.

Make a donation

They are extremely vulnerable and we cannot afford to let them down. We must continue our specialist care during these uncertain times – and our dedicated staff are working round the clock to meet the children’s complex needs.

We can’t do this alone. Just as the children need us to be there for them right now, we need you.

The coronavirus pandemic is having a devastating impact on our fundraising. Our charity shops have closed; fundraising events and sporting challenges are cancelled. In the next few months alone, we will miss out on hundreds of thousands of pounds. So we’re relying on our kind supporters more than ever to help.

The best way you can help is to make a donation today, but there are so many other ways you can get involved and help keep our vital services going for children with brain injury – take a look at the ideas below. Our work must not stop.

What does your out of office say? You may have updated it to say that you are working from home but have you included a giving opportunity? Why not include a link to The Children’s Trust appeal.

Home Challenges

If you are at home with the children struggling to educate them and keep them entertained why don’t you set them a challenge and sponsor them. It could be cooking, cleaning or making something creative.

Sponsored haircut

Are you missing out on your hair cut and colour? Is your hair getting a little wayward? Why don’t you nominate a friend or co-worker to cut their own hair, if they say yes they can get sponsored, say no and ask them to make a donation to The Children’s Trust.
