Join TeamTCF and take on the 2021 Great North Run to help Make Serious Stuff Fun supporting vulnerable children in the North East, the home of the Run
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.
The Children's Foundation is still operating, some of our projects have paused for now, but thanks to the flexibility of funders and the generosity of our supporters we continue to support those children and families most in need.
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.
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!
