How We Make A Difference

Children North East exists because growing up can be hard. Our mission is that all children grow up to be healthy and happy.

Our approach is flexible, we always listen without judgement and build on strengths within families to find solutions with them. We never give up and we end our involvement when children, young people and families can solve problems for themselves.

Our four core services – NEWPIP, Families and Parenting, Young People’s and Schools – deliver 28 different projects across the North East through the five critical stages of growing up:

Pregnancy and babyhood
Starting school
Changing school
Becoming independent

In the past year we have supported 3,921 babies, children and young people in the region, and have reached 1,094 families and 31,124 children in schools.

We delivered this life changing work through over one million minutes of activities – this is only made possible thanks to the generous support of our funders and supporters who help transform children’s lives throughout the North East.
