Mission of the Month for December – The Children’s Society

The Children’s Society has helped change children’s stories for well over a century. Since 1881 the Society has been working on the streets in communities in this country, day and night, helping children and young people who face abuse, poverty and neglect. That is how, formerly known as Church of England Waifs and Strays, the Society began and continues to the present day.

The Church of England Children’s Society provides specialist support directly to children and their families in local communities. Many children the Society works with are experiencing some of the most complex problems seen in society today. Children and young people receive support from one of the Society’s Project Workers and this is the first time that they have someone to listen to them and ensure their voice is heard.

Your support helps protect the most vulnerable children and young people who are at great risk and have no one else to whom they can turn. The Society exposes injustice and addresses hard truths, tackling child poverty and neglect. It fights for change based on the experiences of every child it works with and the solid evidence it gathers. Through its campaigning, commitment and care the Society is determined to make children free from disadvantage and to give every child in this country the greatest possible chance in life.

We are constantly pressured with many demands from worthwhile charities but hopefully you will consider having a House Collection Box in which you would be able to place your loose change throughout the year thus supporting this leading UK Charity to assist it in continuing to help vulnerable children and young people in this country. Your Box would be emptied each November and the contents forwarded to the Society. Please take a Box from the Children’s Society display table OR let me know if you wish to have a Children’s Society House Collection Box and I will get one to you.

Very many thanks, Hazel Catling ( 242 355).
