…but even that doesn’t stop the percentage of people living below the international poverty line being as high as 17%. In the current climate of economic instability these statistics can only get worse!
What we do
Hope for Children was founded in the UK, and as they say, charity begins at home. Very few people associate poverty with the UK, but that doesn’t mean it is not there if you search hard enough. There are children and families who fall through the gap of statutory and other support networks. For whatever reason they do not receive the support they need from the large support organisations within the UK. For this reason, we run a Small Grants Programme to help these children and their families.
