Fundraise For Us
Why Fundraise For Us?
Welcome to the fundraising page for City Hearts UK - Registered Charity 1110314.
While a lot of our funding comes from government sources, we rely on the kindness and generosity of our supporters to allow us to go that extra mile for our clients.
The services we provide, such as our safe houses and outreach teams, help some of society’s most vulnerable people recover from trauma and abuse.
After living through some truly terrible experiences, survivors are looked after by City Hearts with care and dignity, and that’s where our fundraisers are vital.
We rely on fundraisers like you to help provide our care packages which are given to traumatised, trafficked people when they first arrive at our safe houses.
Simple things such as fresh underwear, pyjamas, toothpaste, or chocolate go a long way towards making survivors feel values and safe.
Money raised by our supporters also provide wellbeing days out, such as our annual day trip to the beach for trafficked adults and children who have never seen the sea before.
Some of our key services, such as longer-term support for survivors of modern slavery simply would not exist without the support of people like you.
Donating to City Hearts helps survivors of slavery move from trauma to transformation
£5 could provide vital necessities - It's the little things that make a big difference, like a toothbrush, fresh towel, or a bar of chocolate. Your donation could fund the basics that make someone feel like they matter.
£20 could fund a safe place to stay - It might be the first safe night's sleep they've had in years. Your donation could make sure a survivor of horrific sexual violence has a safe place to live while our expert team help them recover from trauma.
£25 could fund a fresh start – The toughest barrier to overcome when leaving prison is finding a job. Your contribution will help our team deliver our ‘Forging Ahead Back to Work’ course. This helps someone seeking a crime free future gain the skills and qualifications they need to become employed.
£75 could pay for a personal welcome pack. Survivors usually arrive with nothing but the clothes they stand up in. Your donation will buy them a fresh set of clothes, shampoo, toothbrush and a clean towel.
£100 could fund emotional support – Slavery has a deep and scarring effect on mental health. With your help, a survivor gains access to the vital counselling and mental health support they need to survive and even thrive again.
£150 could stop re-trafficking – The best way to stay safe from future exploitation is to be independent. Your donation will help us provide vital life skills and peer support groups.
We know that some of you would prefer to send us an item rather than a financial donation. If you would like to contribute towards our care packs, visit our online wish list.
