What your donations buy

We believe every child who is traumatised or disadvantaged by crime should have easy access to the support they need to heal, move on with their lives and reach their full potential but we cannot do it without your help.

Our vision is to provide the right services at the right time to support children harmed by crime in their hour of need. We receive no direct funding from Government but with support from police forces, police and crime commissioners, corporate partners and public fundraising we aim to help more young people turn their lives around.

If you are sporty, a thrill seeker or love a challenge please consider joining Team Embrace and fundraise to help us raise vital funds.
