No child should pay the price of the cost of living crisis - but 30% of children in the UK live in poverty.
Your support makes a difference. Thanks to amazing people like you, we handed out over 2,300 direct grants to low-income families in 2022 - meaning parents could buy food, warm clothes and beds for their children.
MADE FOR GOOD
As the cost-of-living crisis hits UK families hard, communities across the country are coming together and local volunteers are doing whatever they can to make a difference.
Volunteers at Smallshaw-Hurst Children’s Community in Ashton-under-Lyne, for example, have set up The Food Pantry with Save the Children’s support – making sure under-pressure families can get healthy food at a fraction of the supermarket cost.
In our ‘Made for Good’ series of films, co-created by Warner Bros. Discovery and Save the Children, Alex Webster – of Quest’s ‘The Woodland Workshop’ – visits this incredible community hub, which is delivering support for families when they need it the most. While he’s there Alex uses his fantastic carpentry skills to create some bespoke furniture for the community as a gesture of appreciation for all they do.
