Children In Need 2022


Children In Need is back on our screens Friday 18th November 2022, on BBC One at 7pm.

Children In Need is all about changing the lives of young people across the UK who are the most in need. Poverty, disability, illness, trauma, mental health, child sexual exploitation, hunger...these are just some of the issues that local charities and projects, funded by Children In Need, tackle. 

It's been a tough few years for many, the pandemic, the impact of the war in Ukraine and the Cost of Living crisis. I know that writing this, times are tough. But, I wanted to again show that yes, of course, money donations help, but raising awareness helps too. When you watch Children In Need and they highlight a facility that has received funding, more often than not, they need help. Whether they have volunteer roles available or just need that boost of their values and messages on Social Media. That is something we can do. It takes seconds to share stories and like posts. If you have more time? Why not see if they need a hand for the day? Especially when they have fundraising events.

Like I have done the previous years; here's all the information you may need...
