The Catholic Children’s Society supports disadvantaged children and families across London, Hertfordshire and the South East. We work with individuals of all faiths and none; our sole aim is to help those in greatest need.
Helping vulnerable families through the cost-of-living crisis
Right now we are helping disadvantaged families with food costs and bills so they can feed their children and keep them warm this winter. Our Crisis Funds have been inundated with requests and in recent months we have provided over £60,000 of emergency funding to support families in crisis. This has only been possible thanks to the generosity of our supporters.
By making a donation you can help us reach more families in urgent need this winter.
Supporting children's mental health & wellbeing
Our ConnectEd counselling and therapy services support the mental health and emotional wellbeing of thousands of children each year. These services are based on-site in over 70 primary, secondary and special schools. This specialist support ensures vulnerable children and young people can develop resilience, achieve their full potential and have better chances in life.
Supporting children with bereavement & loss
We provide training for school staff so they can provide support groups for children who have experienced a devastating loss in their lives. These Rainbows groups help children feel less alone with their grief, improve their self-esteem and prevent more serious mental health issues from developing.
