Alfie's Fund supports vulnerable children, young people and their immediate families who have been harmed by serious crime and who have been further disadvantaged by Covid-19. Typically, the families we support are living on the breadline.

Most of the children we support have suffered sexual abuse, been exploited by online grooming or have witnessed domestic violence - serious crimes which have robbed them of their self-confidence, self-esteem and changed the path of their lives. We know that if these children receive caring support at an early stage, they can learn coping strategies and go on to recover. The potential downward spiral of their life prospects can be arrested...if appropriate support is available.
We prioritise children and families who have been harmed by crime and who are living in low-income households, often in single parent families. Alfie's Hardship Fund provides what we call the three 'Es' - Essential items of food and clothing in the form of supermarket and shopping vouchers; Educational items to help home study, including tablets and software packages; and Entertainment in the form of Netflix or similar television subscriptions or a family day out.
We’re all affected by the Covid-19 measures, none more so than the young victims of serious crime who now find themselves living in poverty-stricken households. Alfie's Fund is important because it will deliver much-needed food and clothing to these children.Please help if you can.
