films that make a difference
We've been contacted by many people wanting to help the families in the film. For further information see the Poor Kids page on this website. Many boxes of clothing, toys, games and other essentials have been sent to our office, and are being passed on the families. They are enormously grateful for the generosity of viewers, and have said that they hope that other families in need will also get similar help. If you want further information, email firstname.lastname@example.org who can give you details.
There are many specialised charities in the UK working to tackle the issues causes by Child poverty and who can offer help and support to families in similar circumstances to those shown in the film. Details of a range of organisations can be found at the bottom of this page and also on the BBC Poor Kids website. Also, Save the Children has set up a specific fund here for families in similar situations.
We have worked with Save the Children to assess any offers of help to ensure that they are
in the best interests of the families and children
to ensure the families are helped but not overwhelmed
