What Can Your Donation Do?
Did you know that your donation will make a real difference to the support we can offer to local children and their families. Primarily we support children from the Yorkshire area with support to help with their emotional and financial needs.
The emotional support encompasses counselling and play therapies in our specialist counselling suite as well as respite breaks at our holiday home at Butlins on the East Coast. Positive mental health can make a big difference when dealing with a long term illness or a disability and your support can mean we can help many more children.
Our financial support is offered through two channels: Firstly we offer a Hospital Stay Grant; this one off payment of £150 is for children who are in hospital for a prolonged duration and can help with the additional costs associated with this, including travel costs, parking charges etc. The second financial support channel is our 50:50 grant which helps to pay for urgently needed, essential items to support the needs of home modifications or medical equipment.
We have seen a dramatic increase in demand for our services over the last few months, especially for our mental health support options and a one-off or regular donation will help us to continue to provide our essential services to the community.
