First Days Book Campaign to support World Book Day
HOW WE HELP
We reduce the long term effect of poverty on children by equipping them
with the essential items they need for their early years and at school.
At First Days we believe all children deserve the same start in life.
Children should be safe in their home, and out about.
They should be confident in school.
They should have lots of fun.
We help facilitate that.
We provide everyday essentials to families who need them by distributing school uniforms, new baby essentials, travel items, toiletries, safety equipment, furniture, toys and books.
4 million children in the UK are living in households whose income falls below the poverty line. This means that, after they've paid for their housing and utilities, they have just £19 per day to live on - for food, clothes, transport, birthdays and every thing else they might need. At First Days we help families at a time of crisis - when they need something for their children and simply cannot afford it.
