Why we need your help

What is Newham Giving Day?
Newham Giving is an innovative local giving programme which supports community projects that provide a lifeline to families struggling to provide activities for children and young people during the school holidays.
On Newham Giving Day - Thursday 19th October 2017 - people all across East London will be raising money to support Newham Giving. However much you raise your money directly helps to improve the lives of young people across the London borough of Newham.
How does it work?
Newham Giving works by combining donations from donors of all sizes, enabling everyone from large businesses to small-to-medium enterprises to local residents and schools, to take part and make a difference.
Newham Giving then awards money to local community projects that have a significant impact in helping young people engage at school, reduce their chances of getting into trouble out of term time and develop their life skills.
Why give to Newham?
Newham is London’s fourth most deprived borough. Two in every 5 children are considered to be living in poverty and almost 3 in every 10 young people aged 16-24 are out of work. Newham is also a young borough with around 30% of the population being aged 20 and under.
During school holidays children and young people are at risk of learning loss and incidents of anti-social behaviour can spike. All this means free and low-cost local activities are vital for supporting local families in need in Newham.
Why support Newham Giving?
By working together, we can create a bigger impact on children and young people as well as the wider community than working on our own. Every £10,000 raised for Newham Giving supports a further 100 children. Your donations will ensure we can support even more local young people, and build a lasting legacy for the borough.

During school holidays throughout the year children and young people are at risk of learning loss, incidents of anti-social behaviour can spike and holiday-hunger becomes real.  This means free and low-cost local activities are vital for supporting local families in need.

Newham Giving is an innovative local giving programme which supports community projects that provide a lifeline to families struggling to provide activities for children and young people during the school holidays.

This sucesfsul initiative has been running for several years and by working together, we have achieved a bigger impact on children and young people as well as the wider community than working on our own.   Every £10,000 raised for Newham Giving supports a further 100 children.  Your donations will ensure we can support even more local young people, and build a lasting legacy for the borough.
