We’re a group of volunteers who work to raise awareness and funds for children and young people and families in need in Conwy.
Our aim is to provide them with life enhancing experiences and opportunities that they wouldn’t otherwise have.
Conwy Kids Matter is a charity whose aim is to promote the welfare of children from families open to Conwy’s Children and Family Services, and to give them opportunities that they may not otherwise have. Sometimes, when we see all of the appeals for children elsewhere in the world, we forget that there are disadvantaged children and families living on our doorstep too! The members of the group are volunteers whose day jobs involve supporting families in need and who work in partnership with social services. Our aim is to give life enhancing experiences to children from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Summary of the group’s activities:
Fundraising on a local level throughout the year, within the Social Services staff pool. Donations and money from fundraising is also received from the local community.
- We support the Annual Conwy Christmas Toy Appeal.
- We provide Christmas food hampers for families in need who receive a social work or support service, from Conwy Children & Families unit.
- We hold monthly meetings to give small grants to individual families. We have funded a variety of requests ranging from the purchase of family outings, swimming lessons, school trips to dance classes etc.
- We work with the various support teams to identify needs and sources of potential funding. When appropriate, we apply for any grants available.
