CHICKS is a national children’s charity that provides free respite and wellbeing breaks to disadvantaged children and young people aged 8-16 from across the UK, including children who live in poverty, suffer abuse, are young carers or have suffered bereavement.

For the children we help, a CHICKS break inspires new confidence, nurtures self-esteem, and sparks new motivation and enthusiasm for life. More than anything they have fun, enjoy being children and make some happy memories that will last a lifetime.

CHICKS has helped over 12,000 children and young people since it began in 1992. This year we aim to brighten even more young lives, but we need your support to make it happen! 

With the generosity of our supporters, and despite receiving no government funding, we are determined to achieve this important goal.

You can help us make a difference!
