Every year Reedham is contacted by dozens of families struggling with generational poverty, mental and physical illness, substance abuse, domestic abuse and disability.

The Children’s Society’s recent Revolving Door Report, estimates that there are 140,000 children in the UK who do not meet the threshold for social care, and are not referred to early help after their case is closed*. 

Many of these children will miss out on appropriate support, and their own futures are at serious risk as they are in greater danger of suffering poor health issues, addiction and poverty when they grow up.

Most of the families we work with are struggling to care for their children due to disability or long term mental or physical ill health; every penny raised goes directly towards transforming the lives of vulnerable children.
