8,400 children and young people are living in poverty in Northampton. Poverty is not going to disappear from Northampton overnight - but a little bit of help here and there could just make a huge difference.
Following the Chronicle & Echo’s ‘Fair Deal For Kids’ campaign back in 2015 we helped to raise £11,559 to support five charitable projects working with children and young people to tackle poverty in Northampton. This included a breakfast club in Blackthorn, support activity for lone young migrants and refugees, support for new mums on a low income and activities for children living in Spring Boroughs.
Now it’s time to launch this campaign all over again, with your help. We've teamed up with the Chronicle and Echo to set up a dedicated Fair Deal for Kids fund.
The fund will be a ring-fenced pot of money for community groups and volunteer organisations within Northamptonshire that work to tackle poverty. Every small donation will make a real difference.
