Our Impact

Our annual impact report provides a glimpse of some of our amazing achievements and how The Children's Foundation have supported children and families throughout the last year to read the 2020-21 full report

Improving the health and well-being of children and young people in the North East by making serious stuff fun!

Improving the health and well-being of children and young people in the North East by making serious stuff fun!

We are a registered charity set up in 1990 in Newcastle upon Tyne, at a time when the North East had the worst levels of child health in the country (Government report Health of the Nation 1990). Our ‘Yellow Brick Road Appeal’ raised £12M to build The Sir James Spence Institute of Child Health, a home for research into childhood ill –health, a building we gifted to the NHS.  In return we occupy a small office within the building and are supported by the Trust with IT.  So, while we have NHS emails it’s important to stress that The Children’s Foundation receives no statutory funding at all.

Today we continue to improve the health and well-being of children and young people from birth to 18 in the North East by Making Serious Stuff Fun!

 

This Year we are celebrating our 30th year of supporting children and young people across the North East. Let’s celebrate this together.

Swap Shop Day was a joy for all involved! Our Green Gladiators encouraged their fellow pupils to swap the toys they no longer use. ♻️
They ended up running separate swap shops for every year group! 🚂🤖
