In October 2009, I along with 21 others, set forth on a charity trek across the Sahara Desert, unaware that it was to change my life forever. The trek was such an amazing experience and over £50,000 was raised for our chosen charity, Help a London Child -Registered Charity Number 1091657
Help a London Child - The Charity
Help a London Child provides financial support to grass-root projects working with London’s less advantaged children and young people.
Help a London Child was launched in 1975 by our founder Lord Attenborough, as 95.8 Capital FM's charity. Over the last thirty four years the charity has raised in excess of £20,000,000 and awarded that amount to over 10,000 small groups and charities.
“LESS ADVANTAGED KIDS DON'T HAVE LESS IMAGINATION,
JUST LESS OPPORTUNITY TO EXPRESS IT.”
- Lord Attenborough CBE, Life Patron
What we do
95.8 Capital FM's Help a London Child is a grant giving charity, which means twice a year the charity provides practical and lasting support to thousands of youngsters aged 18 and under. Help a London Child grants aim to directly assist and give opportunities to the Capital's children and young people who:
- Experience poverty and disadvantage
- Have/are experiencing abuse, neglect, homelessness, violence or crime
- Have an illness or disability.
How do we decide where the money goes?
Each year, an independent panel from the voluntary sector assesses the hundreds of applications for funding received by HALC to decide where the money should go. Help a London Child allocates grants to registered charities or voluntary and community groups that aim to make a positive difference to children and young people’s lives. Grants are targeted at the areas of greatest need, and money is allocated geographically to ensure that children and young people in all corners of London receive a balanced share of the money raised.
In 2008, 400 groups across London were awarded a share of £705,165.
In addition to our small grants program, Help a London Child launched its large grants program in March 2005. As a result of raising even more money in recent years we have been able to dedicate, over a 3-year period, £50,000 each to four charities in the Capital, which means:
In 2007 Help a London Child awarded £1,040,406 to 481 children and young people's groups, benefiting over 120,000 children and young people.
Of these, 477 are small grants totalling £860,058, and 4 are large grants who were awarded £180,348.
How is the money raised?
Throughout the year Help a London Child is involved in fundraising events including black-tie galas, sponsored treks and runs. The charity also relies on the generosity and imagination of the general public to donate money.
Help a London Child is an appeal run by Global Charities. Registered charity number 1091657, and a member of the IoF.
