Our Vision

 

The Childhood Trust is a charity founded with a simple vision: to support vulnerable children living in poverty in London.

Poverty is about more than income; for many children poverty can mean uncertainty, stress, hunger, loneliness, boredom and a lack of opportunities. Education helps address some of these issues, providing one of the strongest routes out of poverty.

Practical and emotional support from local grassroots community organisations promotes resilience, helping children to cope with their often challenging circumstances and strengthening their capacity to learn. The services we support offer vulnerable children stability, companionship and trust helping to raise aspirations, creating hope and narrowing the gap in attainment and life chances. 

Who we are

We support projects across London that provide disadvantaged children with practical and emotional support where it is needed the most. We also support projects that inspire children through participation in arts, education and sports activities. 

Our Projects

Every child deserves a happy, safe childhood
and a future full of opportunity.
