A monthly gift...
- £5 per month over a year could pay for two hours of a CLIC Sargent Nurse’s time, so that they can coordinate clinical and non-clinical care for children with cancer, to maximise the amount of time they can safely spend at home, and ensure that treatments can be given closer to home where possible.
- £8 per month over a year could help pay for a family to stay for three nights in one of CLIC Sargent’s Homes from Home, providing accommodation near to specialist children’s cancer treatment centres, which are often many miles from a family’s own home. Staying in a Home from Home ensures a family can be close to their child during treatment.
- £10 per month over a year could pay for a CLIC Sargent Play Specialist for a day, so that they can help a child prepare for and cope with treatment, by using models, toys and photos to explain what will happen.
A single gift...
- £15 could pay for one copy of CLIC Sargent’s DVD to help families where a child or young person has died of cancer to understand and cope with their grief.
- £25 could help pay for an hour of a CLIC Sargent Nurse’s time, so that they can coordinate clinical and non-clinical care for children with cancer, to maximise the amount of time they can safely spend at home, and ensure that treatments can be given closer to home where possible.
- £50 could pay for three hours of a CLIC Sargent Play Specialist’s time, so that they can help a child prepare for and cope with treatment, by using models, toys and photos to explain what will happen.
- £75 could help pay for three hours of a social worker’s time. They will aim to meet children and young people with cancer, and their families, soon after diagnosis and help them to understand and cope with the emotional, practical and financial effects of cancer, through treatment and beyond.

WE'RE PROUD TO BE THE OLDEST WELFARE CHARITY AROUND!
We were the first to introduce a law to protect animals and we work hard to ensure that all animals can live a life free from pain and suffering. Speak up
Through our campaigns we raise standards of care and awareness of issues for the animals who have no voice. With your support we push for laws to be changed, improving the welfare of animals on farms, in research labs, in the wild, in paddocks or in our homes. Stand up Through investigations and prosecutions we stand up to those who deliberately harm animals to send out a clear message - we will not tolerate animal abuse. Our highly trained officers tackle neglect and cruelty at every level and are working hard to stamp out large-scale serious, organised and commercial animal cruelty. Be counted We believe every animal has the right to be counted as an individual. Animals can rely on us to rescue them when they need us most. To rehabilitate them wherever possible, provide them with the very best veterinary care and to find them new homes, either through rehoming or release. Show your support We are an animal welfare charity. We rely on the continuing support of animal lovers like you. Help us today so we can continue to be here.
“Good actions give us strength and inspires good actions in others.”
Every child deserves the best possible chance to rebuild their life after abuse
That’s why we’re here. That's what drives all our work. And that’s why – as long as there’s abuse – we will fight for every childhood. With so much of our income coming from your fundraising activities and donations, we make showing you where the money is spent a priority. We receive more than 90% of our funding from generous supporters. Amazing people like you, who believe in our work - believe that every childhood is worth fighting for.
