According to Child Poverty Action Group, there were 4.1 million children living in poverty in the UK in 2017-18. That’s why we’re supporting Thrive.
'THRIVE' is a voluntary organisation based in Chipping Norton in North Oxfordshire, aiming to support local children living in desperate circumstances. It was formed in 2016 by a small group of local women after meeting the founders of an organisation called, ‘Community Awareness’, based in Gloucestershire. This organisation works to raise awareness of and offer support to local children living below the poverty line.
The main objective of ‘Thrive’ is to provide practical support to these children of struggling families in North Oxfordshire who, for whatever reason, have a genuine, urgent need. Usually, this need would be for a specific basic item such as toiletries, a bed to sleep on, basic clothing (that most of us take for granted) or a rug to cover a bare floor following a sudden home move.
