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; it is about a lack of stability and opportunity. It has long been recognised that education can help address this lack, providing one of the strongest routes out of poverty. Unfortunately, many children living in poverty are not able to make the most of their educational opportunities.

Support from local, grassroots and community organisations can strengthen and supplement the education experience, raising aspirations and narrowing the gap in attainment that plays such a crucial role in defining the quality of childhood.

Who we are

Across London we support projects which are inspirational, and provide practical and emotional support where it is needed the most.

Every child deserves a happy, safe childhood
