Giving vulnerable children a happier Christmas

This Christmas we will help hundreds of children struggling with the chaos and trauma of parental substance abuse, imprisonment or poverty. They can feel isolated, unhappy and vulnerable. The help Circle provides gives those children the best chance of a happy life not just a happy Christmas.

Circle supports children, and their families, suffering multiple disadvantages and complex traumas. These traumas can include parental substance abuse, imprisonment and poverty. At Christmas time social pressure adds stress to families who find it difficult to heat their homes, feed their families and make Christmas a happy time. With your support we can take some of the pressure off by helping families with food hampers with a festive twist and in some cases even help with children's gifts.


Circle helps families avoid the stress of Christmas and enables them to create happy memories instead. Supporting families with food, festive treats and appropriate gifts Circle can help them develop stronger relationships, build trust and create a safe, and fun, environment for children. Circle works all year round with children, and parents, to help them understand their issues, find their own solutions and make positive choices. Giving them a chance to lead a happier, more productive life.
