“We, at Maryland Primary School, have the most amazing Family Support Worker that I have ever known. Her knowledge, confidence, passion and determination is amazing. Our families lives are turned around and they are given HOPE for a brighter future.” Lorna Jackson, Headteacher at Maryland Primary School


Over 4 million children in the UK are growing up in poverty, facing long-term educational inequality if they can’t be supported today. Leaving any gift in your will, funds vital interventions supporting children in need today. Today, the UK children we work with are:

  • Six times more likely to be affected by domestic violence
  • Nine times to need support because of drug and or alcohol problems  
  • Four times to need support because of mental health problems

Types of gift

You can choose to leave a percentage of your will, or all of it, after all payments have been made and loved ones have been provided for. For example, you can

  • choose to leave a fixed sum to support families in need
  • choose to leave a specific item, such as artwork, jewellery or shares
