Wave 105 Cash For Kids - Dorset, Hants, IOW, W. Sussex & Wiltshire

"Supporting local children through grants, Mission Christmas and emergency appeals (Coronavirus)"

Who We Help, Why We Help & the Difference It Makes

- Who we are and who we help -

Wave 105 Cash For Kids is a unique charity that is similar to 'BBC Children in Need’ but on a local level, meaning that all money raised locally stays locally and benefits children near you.

We also respond to emergencies and our latest Cash For Kids Appeal was set up in response to Coronavirus to help families that were already struggling.

- How we help -

Last year, we helped over 37,000 children in Dorset, Hants, IOW and parts of West Sussex and Wiltshire - but that is only a percentage of the thousands of children living in poverty, with an illness or disability, or in vulnerable circumstances across the south.

We work closely with social workers, schools, local charities and others who can identify the children who need the most help. 

- We make a real difference -

We help children all year round and our grants have helped a wide range of children - from providing school shoes for children whose shoes were falling apart and hurt their feet to dance lessons for disabled children and from providing books to local hospitals to help children understand bereavement to funding distraction equipment for hospital Children's Emergency Departments.   

- Emergency response -

Our emergency Cash For Kids Appeal in response to the Coronavirus outbreak will help families that struggle at the best of times and we will give these families emergency grants via our established network of local schools, charities and social workers, with the help of supporters in the south.

- Mission Christmas -

Cash For Kids is best known for our Mission Christmas appeal - 32,394 children and teenagers opened a present on Christmas Day thanks to supporters of our 2019 appeal.  

- Our campaigns and events -

Our annual campaigns include a Charity Auction, 1000 Faces and Every Day Trade Champion and we have lots of Challenge Events and Community Events that our supporters hold in aid of Cash For Kids.

- Working with others -

Want to help local children but don't know who to support? We can remove that worry for you.
Cash For Kids supports lots of different children's charities and organisations who help children across the south - if you choose to support us, we will ensure your donation helps children near you. Have a look at the Additional Information section to see a list of some of the charities and organisations we have helped.
