We believe that all children should have an equal opportunity to reach their potential, regardless of their circumstances.
All our programmes are designed to help less fortunate children to achieve precisely that.
Whom we help and how
We improve those young lives by providing practical help (such as Sunshine Coaches, wheelchairs and specialist equipment) and memorable childhood experiences. Our practical help makes an immediate difference. It means that children have fewer bad days and more great days. With independence, freedom and dignity they are able to make the most of their childhood.
We play a key role in building the self esteem of children who are disadvantaged and in making them the people who they become.
Child Friendly Leeds
Child friendly Leeds is a city-wide initiative that aims to make Leeds the best city for children and young people to grow up in.
The original idea came from UNICEF and aimed to promote children’s rights and voices in all decisions that affect them. Leeds has built on that by making children and young people central to our ambitions for the social and economic regeneration of the city.
People and organisations from all backgrounds can get involved by asking themselves what it feels like to be a child or young person growing up in Leeds today… and how together we can make it better? We are proud to be supporting Yorkshire Children of Courage Awards 2015.
