Global’s Make Some Noise is a national charity that helps change young lives.
All across the UK there are small but brilliant projects supporting youngsters and their families living with illness, disability or lack of opportunity, in their local communities. These small projects find it hard to get heard, so, as the official charity of 8 of the biggest radio stations in the UK – Heart, Capital, Classic FM, Smooth, Capital Xtra, Radio X, LBC and Gold – we give them a voice and raise money for their incredible work.
Every pound makes a huge difference. Below are just some of the ways your contribution will help improve the lives of disadvantaged children and young people. Please give what you can.
What £10 can buy
£7 will pay for a Benny and Bella Bear storybook and cuddly toy to provide comfort for a child who has Spina Bifida.
£10 can fund an hour-long session with a family worker to help support children who have experienced trauma, disruption and chaos in their lives.
What £20 can buy
£15 pays for a "memory book" for a child to remember their special person. The books contain a mixture of the child's memories and activities completed with their family worker following the death of someone close.
£20 pays for a special cooling pillow that helps to reduce swelling and blistering, and provides comfort for a child suffering with the skin condition Epidermolysis bullosa (EB).
What £30 can buy
£25 pays for a child or young person with cerebral palsy and other disabilities to take part in a sports day with other children of similar abilities.
£27 pays for an Occupational Therapist to spend an hour with young people helping them to recover from physical and mental illnesses.
What £40 can buy
£37 can cover the cost of a Speech & Language Therapist for an hour to work with a child who stammers.
£40 pays for a music therapy session for a child with severe and complex needs, which can help with their listening and co-ordination skills.
What £50 can buy
£44 pays for transport and a support worker to take young carers to and from a club giving them a break from their caring responsibilities.
£50 pays for a music therapy session for babies and children in hospital, allowing them to express themselves through music or singing, and helping take their minds off the their treatment.
What £100 can buy
£80 a day will pay for a Child Bereavement Support Worker to provide support to a young person who is suffering with the loss of a loved one.
£100 funds an assessment or therapy for a child or young person who stammers, to establish the support they need and give them the tools to manage their speech.
Sadly, 1 in 29 children aged 5-16 are bereaved of a parent or sibling. SeeSaw was established in 2000 to help support these children and young people in Oxfordshire – and since then has gone on to support over 4300 children, young people and their families.
Considered ‘the worst condition you’ve never heard of’, we are extremely supportive of the work DEBRA are doing to make sure that everyone has heard of Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB).
