130 for 130

2022 marks the 130th anniversary of Children North East, making us the oldest independent children’s charity in the region! Throughout our history, we have supported children across the North East to help them grow up to be healthy and happy, adapting our work and our services to provide support where it’s needed most. We provide support through every stage of growing up, from pregnancy and early years through to young people entering adulthood.On our 130th anniversary year, we are asking 130 businesses to become supporters and donate a minimum of £130 to help us reach our target of £65,000. Corporate partnerships are something we want to work on building as a charity this year! We would be thrilled if you chose to support us. 🌟
