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

The Children’s Foundation is a North East children's charity, set up in 1990, with the vision of giving children and young people in the North East the best health and well-being services in the UK.

Our response to the Covid-19 pandemic, how are we helping?

“I just wanted to thank you for everything. I could honestly cry at how amazing the packs are! I don’t have much to spend on my kids at the moment, so this is absolutely wonderful." Mum of 3.

The TCF Surf Club

Following on from a successful 2020 summer scheme we now offer a weekly kids surf club suitable for 8-16 year old’s.

Holiday Hunger Open Letter

The Children’s Foundation, a North East children’s charity, is fully committed to making sure children do not go hungry. We are determined to end inequity in health, which includes poverty and holiday hunger.

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