In April 2020, The Childhood Trust launched our first ever Champions for Children matched-funding campaign to support vulnerable children and young people affected by the coronavirus crisis. Our campaign took place in June 2020 and raised over £3.6m of unrestricted funds for 94 charities supporting children living in poverty across London. In early 2021, we asked our charities how their campaign funds had been spent and what outcomes they had seen to date.
Our CfC20 campaign was so successful, that we repeated it in 2021. 111 charities participated in the Champions for Children 2021 campaign, which took place 8-22nd June and raised £3.4m for disadvantaged children across London.
