Why we need your help

Take A Minute – Help A Child

Why we need your support:


As we emerge from lockdown, our work now focuses on repairing the damage to young people's mental health and wellbeing brought about by the pandemic.

As predicted, we are already seeing an increased demand for our specialist services in schools and homes throughout Essex and East London.

This means that donations from our community have never been more vital to ensure the continuation of our work.

When our Take A Minute Appeal was launched two years ago, it was with the hope that we could raise an additional £35,000 to boost our funds.

Now, our appeal takes on a new and greater significance as we begin to pick up the pieces for these children and young people in our community struggling with feelings of bereavement and loss or who are suffering from abuse, anxiety or neglect. 

So, once again, we are turning to our friends and supporters to ask if you could help us by getting behind our Take A Minute Appeal again.

Making a donation – no matter how small - will enable us to continue providing our vital services to families and schools throughout this post-crisis period and beyond. 

Thank you.

Impacts of the Pandemic on Children

(Children’s Commissioner for England Findings February 2021) 

The number of children harmed or killed by abuse or neglect during the first lockdown rose by 27%.

The rate of clinically significant mental health conditions increased by 50%

Two thirds of primary school children felt lonely – a 50% increase

A recent study showed that more than 80% of children and young people with a history of mental ill health have found their conditions have worsened since the coronavirus crisis began in the UK.
