There are many rewarding and fun ways in which you can help us in your community.

Read on and contact our Community Engagement Officer, Damian Dillon for more information. 

Whatever your interest there are many exciting and fun ways to raise money to help change children’s lives. We are always looking for more community heroes to do something new for us and would love to hear from you if you have an idea.

Community fundraising helps bring community groups together and there is a host of different ways you fundraise from trekking in Peru, doing a skydive, holding a coffee morning or running a charity golf day.

Fundraising for a worthy cause is an incredibly rewarding experience – not only do you get to do something completely different, meet new people and push out of your comfort zone, you are helping us to support children and families who are, with our support, navigating some really difficult times. There are so many different ways to make your time count; simply choose something that works for you, nominate us as your chosen charity and get started!

We welcome the opportunity to share our story during school assemblies, parent workshops and through parish talks. Attending coffee mornings or meetings of parish groups and clubs allows us to increase awareness of what we do and in this way, broaden our reach so that many more families may benefit from our professional services. If you would like us to come to talk to your members, parishioners or staff about the work we undertake, please contact us.

Community groups are at the heart of our local communities where like-minded people get together to enjoy activities, to socialise and often to raise money for charity. Whether you are a member of a Catenians, Knights or Rotary group, or of a ladies’ or community group with a shared interest, we would love to have your support and would be happy to visit and talk to you and your members about our work.

We are very fortunate to have the support of many parishes in the Diocese of Brentwood who regularly distribute a small collecting box to their First Holy Communion children, asking them, in their own small way, to help to support other children in their community who may need our professional help.

These boxes are given out to the children at the start of their preparation and collected in just before their Communion Day or included in the Offertory of the First Holy Communion Mass, the Going Forth Mass or at the Blessed Sacrament procession.
