Free To Be Kids' Summer Fundraiser
9th May 2024 - Join us for an unforgettable night of music, speakers and performances, with all proceeds funding confidence-building breaks for London's most disadvantaged children and young people.
Set in a hidden eutopia in the heart of London, our celebration evening will give you a first hand taste of Free to Be Kid's transformational work, whilst helping us to move closer towards our target to double the number of children we're able to support over the coming 5 years.
Free to Be Kids supports some of the most disadvantaged children from across London. 79% are living in poverty, 48% support parents with addiction or mental/physical health difficulties and 39% are facing homelessness or other housing instability. Half have no safe spaces to play at home and 40% have never been on a holiday.
Our therapeutic work builds confidence and inspires children to achieve more. Through countryside-based immersive residential trips, children feel brave, proud, adventurous and successful – often for the first time in a very long time.
We promise an evening of entertainment, nature, delicious food and drink, inspiring speakers and much, much more...
Free to Be Kids
Every childhood should be filled with play, adventure and joy. But not every childhood is. When trauma and poverty keep impacting a child's life, they begin to believe that it's their fault. For some children, this destroys their confidence and they lose sight of their potential. Over time, their behaviour, school performance and relationships suffer. That’s where Free to Be comes in.
We create outdoor adventures and experiences that help children to step outside their comfort zones. Through bottle feeding baby lambs, leading candle-lit night walks through the woods, or canoeing across a lake, children begin to see that they are capable of things they had never before thought possible. Our supportive volunteers are alongside them, every step of the way, helping to problem solve and celebrate their success. Over time, children begin to trust themselves and others more, growing the self-belief and confidence they need to see just how much they are capable of.
