What is Childhood Day?
On 11 June, we’re getting the UK playing and raising money to help keep children safe – and we need your help.
Play is an important part of childhood – and after the year we’ve had, we could all do with a bit more of it! Sign up, plan a play day, and raise money.

How your fundraising helps
The money you raise could help provide play sessions with a practitioner that use therapy activities like painting and storytelling which help children and young people like Amber* safely open up about their experiences of abuse. With support from our Letting the Future In sessions, which include play therapy, Amber started to see her life from a new perspective. Play helped protect Amber’s future.
