Children & Families


Children & Families


We want to create a positive environment for our young people to thrive, develop and become the best that they can be.

In Suffolk, over 19,000 children are living in deprivation, but families from all walks of life can face challenges at some point – whether it is with their physical or mental well-being, or with social or economic problems.

Children and young people are supported by many charities in Suffolk, and they help families of every description, improving the lives of children and young people so that they reach their full potential. Being part of the community, those groups are trusted by families and can make a real difference, providing help and hope.

This help includes early intervention and prevention, providing positive influences, education and life-skills.

With a good start, Suffolk children are more likely to have a positive journey through life, with the higher aspirations that lead to successful and happy futures.

The charities supporting children and young families in Suffolk need your financial and practical support to do their work.

I would like to help Children & Families in Suffolk

Why people support children & families

The fund was originally created by my daughter May through a sponsored walk. She is particularly interested in music and supporting young people with challenges or disability who are finding help through this art form. When Suffolk Community Foundation suggested they might like to help fund ‘Rock Up’ it seemed a perfect fit.

We've worked in partnership with Suffolk Community Foundation to create the Suffolk Police & Crime Commissioner's Fund. The fund has awarded several grants to the Porch Project, including an initial £20,000 to get the project off the ground.
