No Child Cold Fund

No Child Cold Fund

Why we need your help

75,000 children in Bradford are now at home taking part in remote learning as a result of the national lockdown. Recently Bradford daytime temperatures reached – 4 degrees. At least 21,000 of children in the district are in homes where affording the extra heating is a challenge, many of these children will be struggling with the cold. Many families are finding heating bills a genuine concern for the first time, people have been impacted by the pandemic through furlough, unemployment and reduced hours.

We are asking that individuals, businesses and faith groups in Bradford have step forward and support the pledge that no child will be cold in our district as a result of national lockdown.

£21 per week will help to support the additional cost of heating, helping families to keep children warm while they learn. Bradford businesses and individuals can give money to make sure no child is cold through GiveBradford. The logistics of the scheme are being delivered by Citizens Advice with referrals from schools and the voluntary sector.

Please consider giving even a small amount to help make sure that no child in our district is cold during this lockdown.

Your funding will go to GiveBradford and be used to provide grants to local community organisations in the Bradford District supporting people experiencing poverty. Initially donations given will go to organisations supporting people experiencing fuel poverty to help them access support and pay their bills, but this focus may change over time to make sure the money you give is going to where it can make the most difference in response to the covid-19 crisis. 

GiveBradford's own income is being significantly affected by the economic impact of the Coronavirus pandemic. To make sure we can run the Fund effectively, maintain strong governance, and exist into the future, we will retain 5% of the net amount of new gifts to the Fund as a contribution to these costs. 

If your gift is eligible, this contribution will come from the Gift Aid we claim. In recognition of the scale of the crisis, this is significantly less than the contribution we normally retain from funds. The contribution is something we will keep under review as the outbreak and our work in response progresses.

GiveBradford is managed by Leeds Community Foundation, registered charity number 1096892.

Families are impacted by the pandemic through furlough, unemployment and reduced hours. Individuals, businesses and faith groups in Bradford have stepped forward to pledge that no child will be cold in our district as a result of lockdown. £21 per week will provide the additional heating costs for a family to keep children warm while they learn. For the cost of a coffee and a sandwich we can provide heating for a day
