Better Beginnings:125 years of caring for children

To celebrate our 125 years of care, Cabrini aim to grow our valuable services for children, adopters and birth families throughout the adoption process. We're also developing our neighbourhood projects pre and after school clubs and subsidised nursery places, helping working parents on low incomes.

Situation

As a voluntary adoption agency our funding is increasingly vulnerable. Donations would provide stability to the services we provide to children, foster carers, adopters and birth families. With your contributions we could increase adopters, opening up the potential for more people to provide a stable, loving home and help more vulnerable children waiting in the care system. We can also help children to access nursery places who otherwise might not have day care due to parent's low incomes.

Solution

This project will reduce the numbers of children going back into the care system. Cabrini has one of the lowest disruption rates in the UK - 6% compared to 20% nationally - and we aim to maintain this level of service, which in turn helps reduce the tax burden of supporting care home places. We can also offer affordable breakfast, nursery and after school clubs to parents who otherwise couldn't afford child care, providing young children with engaging activities, like learning healthy eating.
