Support for The Children's Society has been incredible

Everyday thousands of young people across West Sussex are helped to improve their lives by the 511 inspiring people who give up their time and volunteer for The Children's Society.

To celebrate national Volunteers’ Week (June 1-7) I want to say thank you to all our volunteers and supporters for their incredible contribution and the huge variety of ways they give their time and voices to support our work with young people affected by issues such as abuse, hardship and neglect.

There are 168,834 children living in West Sussex and 3,877 are classed as children ‘in need’. The Children’s Society’s volunteers, campaigners and supporters make an enormous difference to so many lives by supporting young people directly in our projects, helping in our charity shops, raising funds and awareness of our work.
