Christmas should be a time for food, fun, family and friends. But for many of the families we support, this is a Christmas they can only dream of. These families may not be able to afford a Christmas meal, or a present to open on Christmas Day, or they may be struggling to cope alone, with no one to turn to.
Family Action believes every family we support deserves to enjoy Christmas together. We need your support to make this a reality.
£32 could pay for a family to join a day of festive activities and get a hot, healthy meal at one of our Holiday Hubs
With over 4 million children living in poverty in the UK, this Christmas many families across the country will struggle to afford basic needs like food or social and leisure activities. Your support can help pay for our Holiday Hubs, that give families a place to go over the holidays with free activities and a hot meal for the whole family.
£25 could pay for a FamilyLine counsellor to provide emotional support for a parent struggling to cope this Christmas
This Christmas the families we support will face a range of challenges, from mental health struggles after the birth of a child, to bereavement or separation. Your support means FamilyLine, our phone, text and email support service, can be open throughout the Christmas period to offer emotional support for parents and carers so they don’t have to face these challenges alone.
£15 could buy a Christmas present for a vulnerable child who would otherwise go without
Last year you helped us provide presents for over 7,000 children who might otherwise have had nothing to open on Christmas Day. This year we want to give the joy of a Christmas present to even more children. Your donation could buy a present for one of the children we support to make their Christmas extra special.
By supporting our Families at Christmas appeal, you can help give every family the chance to enjoy a happy Christmas.
Whatever you can give will make a huge difference.
