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.

Supporting children & families impacted by COVID-19

Many families are facing desperate situations due to loss of work and social isolation.  So far we’ve helped over 2,300 vulnerable children with funding for food and basic essentials to help them through this challenging time.  This has only been possible thanks to the generosity of our supporters.

By making a donation you can help us reach out to more families in urgent need.
