How You Can Help

Children and War UK needs your support

With your help we can reach more children who face upheaval, trauma and grief.

The sooner they have help, the better their chances of coping psychologically as they face their future.

Your money will help Children and War UK train local people to work with large groups of children, to improve their psychological wellbeing and resilience.

Have fun raising money for Children and War UK

  • Firm favourites such as cake sales at work, sponsored walks with friends and family appeal to everyone.
  • Run a marathon! Thomas Stone ran the Brighton marathon in 2022 and raised £2,284 for Children and War UK. If marathons are your thing, or you’re stepping up for the first time, it’s a great way to help our work.
  • How about inviting friends round for a fundraising meal?
  • Or maybe set up a fundraising karaoke night, or a live music gig for local talent?

There are lots of ways to raise money and you’ll be giving scared and unhappy children a chance to face their future with more confidence.

Where your money goes

Most of the money raised by Children and War UK goes to training people across the world to work with large groups of children.

Your money goes on training people across the world to work with large groups of children

We offer a modest fee to people who train for us; many provide their services pro bono.

Sometimes we have to pay for room hire for our training sessions with adults or with children. We may need to buy paper and pencils, or perhaps toys such as a soft ball for sessions with children. When necessary we cover travel costs for trainers.

We’d love to be able to make videos showing our techniques, specially for trainers and parents. It would be good to have workbooks for the children to use and keep.
