Big Brother Big Sisters Logo

Millions of children need a caring adult role model. When children and teens have the influence of a caring adult, they are more likely to avoid risky behaviors and to focus on academics. Today's youth face a variety of challenges, and being matched with a Big Brother or Big Sister can help them navigate these challenges and reach their potential.

 Children With Cancer UK Logo

By investing in research, we can help more children to ring the end of treatment bell. Ringing the bell is a huge milestone for a child with cancer - it means they've finished their treatment. Our vision is that no child dies of cancer and we spend every day working towards our goal.

Our journey started with a promise to help children 

The O’Gorman family was shattered when brother and sister, Paul and Jean, fell victim to cancer within nine months of each other. 14-year-old Paul died in February 1987, only nine weeks after his initial diagnosis of leukaemia in 1986. Before Paul died he asked his parents, Eddie and Marion O’Gorman to help other children with leukaemia. His sister Jean, in defiance of her cancer, had started to raise funds for children with leukaemia in her brother’s memory. She died just nine months later that November.

 Action For Children Logo

We are concerned that opportunities to intervene early are being missed. Some children are stuck in a revolving door into social care, in a cycle of referral and assessment, but only receiving help at crisis point.

Vital family support services for problems like domestic abuse provide help that can stop problems spiraling out of control, and prevent the need for statutory services later on.  However, years of austerity and budget cuts mean that often, these essential support services are no longer available.

We examined whether children who are vulnerable but don’t meet the criteria for statutory support were directed to early help services that could help them and their families.
