About Help A Capital Child

Our charity, Help a Capital Child, was set up in 1975 to help disadvantaged young people in our local areas. We support children and young people affected by abuse, homelessness, disability, poverty and illness. We may live in one of the wealthiest cities and countries in the world but the statistics are shocking:

1 in 3 children in London live below the poverty line 

70,000 children in London are living with a disability

20,000 families across the UK have been told their child will die before them

6 teenagers and young people are told they have cancer every day

There are 22,000 children and young people in London who are caring for a parent or sibling

Many of these children and young people face hardship and have to grow up fast. We’re here to make a difference and we do this in a number of ways.

We provide small grants to hundreds of local projects and groups located throughout London, who provide support and opportunities for these young people.

In the last year we have also funded 9 major grants which will leave a lasting legacy and make a huge impact on thousands of children in London for years to come.

In 2010/11 with your help, a record-breaking £1,586,340 has been awarded to 431 charities and voluntary groups through all our London grants programmes, benefiting over 84,000 of the Capital’s disadvantaged and most vulnerable children and young people.
