Story

A shocking 20% of the children in our local community live in poverty!

We regularly hear from our referrers about families where children do not have a bed of their own instead, they are sleeping on the floor, the sofa, or share a bed with another family member.

In 2017 we decided we wanted to do more for the local community and we launched a Bed for Every Child campaign. Each bed frame, mattress, duvet, pillow, sheets and covers cost less than £300.

To date we have provided a bed for 45 disadvantaged children across the borough. We can only continue to provide this essential service with your support.

The knock-on effects of children having their own bed are manifold they include: a better nights sleep, which in turn leads to better concentration and performance at school, enhanced health and wellbeing, reduced risk of sexual abuse, and raised sense of self-esteem that comes with having ones own items.

Thank you so much, on behalf of all the families we support.

Every child deserves their own bed to snuggle in, especially this time of year when they need somewhere to hang their stockings.
