There are some of the wonderful organisations working with sick, bereaved or disadvantaged children that we are supporting through our Headspace partnership (which means that all their hardworking staff are given free registration to the world's leading mindfulness and meditation app)
Winstons Wish is the leading childhood bereavement charity in the UK. The death of a parent or sibling is one of the most fundamental losses a child will ever face. At Winston’s Wish, we believe that bereaved children need support to make sense of death and rebuild their lives – and that is why we exist.
The James Hopkins Trust is a charity which provides practical help for severely disabled, life threatened and life limited young children with nursing needs, aged 5 years and under, living in Gloucestershire. Since 1989, the trust has helped well over 350 children and families in every corner of Gloucestershire, to the staggering amount of over 150,000 hours of nursing – free to those that desperately need it.

Child Bereavement UK supports families and educates professionals when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, or when a child is facing bereavement. Every year we train over 7000 professionals, helping them to better understand and meet the needs of grieving families.

CHICKS is a national children's charity providing free respite breaks to disadvantaged children from all over the UK. We believe every child has the right to make positive childhood memories. A CHICKS break inspires new confidence and gives children the chance to have fun, enjoy new experiences and relax. More than anything, it gives them the chance to just be children.
CHICKS began in 1992, and has since provided over 13,000 children with a much needed break. In 2016, we're hoping to give up to 1,200 children a respite break, but we need to raise £1.8 million to make this a reality.
