Every child deserves to thrive, whatever their circumstances might be.
Small charities up and down the country are making this possible and we’re here to strengthen their work. They are at the heart of local communities changing many lives, and yet we know that they can go unnoticed until they are needed.
We know that people want to support small charities, but don’t always know how to find or verify them.
Global’s Make Some Noise is the trusted and easy way to champion local charities across the UK. We aim to work with projects for 3 years through a carefully tailored package of support to keep much-needed services running in the years to come.
The Child Brain Injury Trust is one of the small charities that we’re funding. They provide long-term support, including a helpline, for children, young people and their families affected by an acquired brain injury (ABI: injury occurring after birth).
Rachel Parsons, Head of Fundraising at the Child Brain Injury Trust, told us:
“This is the largest donation we have ever received. Our specialist team of coordinators in Wales and London will be able to provide a lifeline to children and families whose lives have been torn apart by a devastating brain injury. It doesn’t matter how the child’s brain was injured – it could have been the result of an accident, an illness like meningitis, a stroke, a brain tumour or poisoning – our team are there to provide expert advice and support for however long we are needed.”
Global’s Make Some Noise has given a grant of £88,000! This means we can support the charity’s Child & Family Support Service in Wales for 2 years, including a new role. This money can also part-fund some of the charity’s work in London, to help even more children with ABI and their families across the UK.
Together, we can make life better for disadvantaged children, young people and their families.
