ACROSS Cheshire there are amazing people who are helping to transform young lives by taking action with The Children’s Society.

This Volunteers Week (June 1-7) we would like to thank each and every one of them.

Right now there are 4,477 children living in Cheshire classed as children ‘in need’ and sadly this number continues to increase steadily.

We help thousands of children and young people in many different ways; including those affected by poverty, mental health issues and victims criminal or sexual exploitation.

In the past year nearly 10,000 volunteers gave us their time, contributing almost 480,000 hours of incredible work.

There are a variety of ways to help, from supporting young people directly in our services, volunteering in our shops, organising events, taking part in challenges, campaigning, donating, or increasing local awareness of our work.

If you are inspired to get involved, contact us on 0300 303 7000 or supportercare@childrenssocety. we’d love to talk to you.

The need is great and every hour volunteered, every campaign action taken, every donation made makes a real difference.
