Last August we unexpectedly lost our much loved CEO of over 30 years, Marjolein De Vries, a local legend working tirelessly for people with learning disabilities and autism, their parents and siblings. Dedicated to her work she was an inspiration for many, and shortly after being diagnosed with cancer she passed away knowing she was loved, respected and had made a difference to our families and our community.

We'd like to dedicate this year to her.

Rise - help us raise £10,000

We believe that the year ahead, our 55th anniversary year, is FULL of hope and a fresh start for our charity. We are rising up from this sad and hard time to raise funds for Kith & Kids upcoming summer projects and services.

Shine - celebrate our 55th anniversary year

The year ahead will bring new leadership and a new children's project for those we support. We know we will thrive and become even more embedded in our local community, shining brightly by the end of the anniversary year. No one likes a celebration more than Kith & Kids and 55 years is worth celebrating! Right?

Your help now can make a big difference

The need for our work does not decline. Our small team of talented and dedicated staff and volunteers are pulling together now more than ever before, to deliver Kith & Kids’ important work come rain or shine;

Our Family Support and crisis services,

Our volunteer supported Social Development Projects and Weekend Clubs,

Our Employment and Life Skills training for adults,

Our Healthy Living activities

Please donate and celebrate

With our Summer Social Development Project just around the corner we want to raise £10,000 from our wonderful community of supporters.

We’re asking you to help us now in honour of Marjolein, in celebration of our last 55 years of hard work, and to provide many more years of essential support for people with learning disabilities and autism.

Please share this page with as many people as possible, follow us on social media and contact us if you can help in any way.

Thank you.
