Why your donation matters and how it helps children living in poverty

Scotland’s vulnerable children and young people need extra support now more than ever. As the Coronavirus crisis rapidly escalates, more children and their families are being pushed into deeper poverty.

Families who were already struggling now find themselves unable to afford food and basic essentials, meanwhile their mental health is deteriorating rapidly.

Your donation will support communities directly, right here in Scotland. With your support, we can reach even more children and families to help the most vulnerable families to not just survive these unprecedented times, but to come out stronger than before.

Every single penny raised by the STV Children’s Appeal stays in Scotland and 100% of donations are spent on the children who need it most, as all overheads are met by STV plc and The Hunter Foundation
