First Days Children’s Charity
First Days was set up in 2013 by Emma Cantrell, in response to research that identified a need in the local community in Berkshire: families were struggling to make ends meet and could not provide all that their children needed. In the five years since, First Days have supported thousands of families who are living in poverty. Their challenge now is to work with other organisations to begin to provide services that families need to help them in the long term. If you’d like to know more contact Emma.
Yorkshire Children’s Trust
Yorkshire Children’s Trust was founded by two sets of parents after their daughters were diagnosed with Leukaemia. Since 2011, the charity has set out to help children and their families cope with the emotional and financial strain of many life-changing illnesses, something the founders of the charity understand after dealing with cancer. Despite their far-reaching work with local parents, support workers and medical professionals, Yorkshire Children’s Trust receive no lottery, NHS or central government funding. The cost of helping children rises every year and they rely 100% on donations to fund their essential work in the community.

The Bumblebee Children’s Charity incorporates all aspects of the child’s development (physical, cognitive, social and emotional) into its programme.

They do this by evaluating the services they provide for children and families and conducting research.
