Welcome to HOPE

By supporting our charity you are making a conscious decision to improve the lives of children. Our vision is simple; we aim to create a world where children’s rights are realised and they can reach their full potential.

We exist to help orphaned, poor, exploited and other marginalised children in developing countries and in the UK. We are a non-sectarian, non-political and not-for-profit organisation that provides crucial support to children who really need it.


Get involved! (It's amazing what you can do!)
