Investors, Sponsors and Individual Donors
Generous support from major donors make it possible for us to be a strong voice for street children
We are grateful to be the charity chosen by several generous investors, sponsors and donors whose continuing support over many years makes such a difference to our work and has helped change the lives of street children.
Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, street children will understand their rights and how to make their voices heard. We hope this will contribute to better laws to protect them, and improved access to basic services such as education, protection and healthcare.
“The lottery of life is unkind in many ways, and those of us who are the winners in that lottery – well fed, well clothed, and with a conscience – have a duty, a responsibility, to help wherever we can.”
CSC Patron, The RT Hon Sir John Major, KG CH, November 2019
Each year we take part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge. The Christmas Challenge is a match funding campaign where donations to participating charities are doubled. The match funds come from two sources – charities secure some of these pledges over the summer. These funds may then be boosted by funds from a Big Give Champion who contributes to the match fund. This collective pot is used to double donations from online supporters during the campaign live week.
Gwyneth Forrester Trust
The Gwyneth Forrester Trust was established in 2000 thanks to a bequest from Gwyneth Forrester who died on 11th February 1999. The trust provides grants to charitable organisations addressing challenges such as homelessness; children in crisis; support for the elderly; and helping youths and ex-offenders into employment.
