Help us reach out to the children our society has forgotten

Help us care for forgotten children.

Chloe’s mum is amazed at how much happier she is now and how much better she is doing at school."


Chloe is a 12-year-old girl, growing up in one of the UK’s most troubled neighbourhoods. Her life changed when she joined a Salvation Army after-school club. 

Chloe’s mum works long hours in a low paid job and there is rarely enough food in the house. Chloe often went to bed hungry and didn’t go out to play as the streets are unsafe.

Help came, however, when one of her teachers at school suggested she join an after-school club that The Salvation Army runs in her local area.

Before long, Chloe was attending regularly and involved in a whole series of activities she had never taken part in before – music, sports, games and outings to local parks. She now has a safe and happy place to play and learn with other children, and is in the company of our staff and volunteers who spend time with her, listen to her problems and her hopes for the future. Chloe’s mum is amazed at how much happier she is now and how much better she is doing at school. 

Please help us give children the chance to flourish.

The Salvation Army cares for vulnerable children in so many ways – not just through school holiday activities like summer camps, but all year round, through after-school clubs, day nurseries, parent-and-toddler groups, breakfast clubs and youth centres. Please make a donation today and help more children like Chloe to thrive. 

Here are some of the ways your donation can help change the lives of people who are suffering:

£20 could cover the cost of running a weekly parent-and-toddler group.

£45 could send a deprived child on a Salvation Army summer camp, building their self-confidence. 

£100 could help run a youth club, giving young people from troubled backgrounds the chance to develop new interests and skills. 

Please make a donation to our summer appeal today using our simple, secure online donation form. Alternatively you can call us on 020 7367 4800, email us on or download our postal form below.
