At Children North East we're doing everything we can to ensure our vital services are still fully accessible to those who need them - and your support is making this happen.

Following the spread of Coronavirus (Covid-19) our vital work is needed now more than ever in the region as the virus amplifies the issues we see on a daily basis, making a huge and detrimental impact on those in need in our region.

This is why we continue to need your help to make sure these vital services can carry on.
