This charity is eligible for the Grow Your Tenner 2013!
We promote the rights of children and young people in North East England and counter the effects of inequality on them, their families and communities.
Our services affirm family relationships; give children and young people opportunities that raise aspirations and encourage community engagement.
Every child that Children North East keeps safely with their parents rather than in care saves local authorities on average £36,600 a year. Every child that we help to attend and do well in school can save society up to £44,500 during the lifetime of that child. Each young person having problems that we support could save the Mental Health Services £2,7002.
Pays for children in homeless accommodation to have fun making pizzas.
Pays for craft materials for disadvantaged children in a school 'friendship group'.
Pays for a trip to the seaside for a child who has never seen the sea.
We have opportunities for adult volunteers to be trained and supported to work with families in need. Our Youth Link projects recruit, train and support young people to mentor and befriend other young people in need. We also welcome volunteers to assist in fundraising and administration at our Head Office.
