How you can help

Last year our dedicated supporters helped us improve the lives of more than one million children and their families with 449 education facilities, 79 medical centres, 30 emergency relief operations and 700 family strengthening and community programmes. In our 571 villages we are caring for more than 60,000 children, providing quality education and healthcare in a family-like environment.

Explore the many ways you can help support the work of SOS Children's Villages  - the world's largest charity caring for children without parental care, or at risk of losing it.
Everything you give improves the life outcomes for vulnerable children. With SOS Children's Villages UK you can choose to sponsor a child or community in 125 countries, or support our emergency and programme work with regular or one-off donations.
 
Our work happens because you make it happen. Every year thousands of people join #TeamSOS by taking part in sporting challenges, coming to our events and organising fundraisers. Find out how you can become one of them.
Experience shows us that we can deliver our mission better by working in partnership with others. We collaborate with companies, schools and communities, individuals, trusts and foundations, linking their philanthropic interests with our project needs around the world.
 
A gift in your will, or in memory of someone you love, will ensure our work can continue into the future and give children hope for a lifetime. Or you can donate your time and skills by volunteering with us, or joining one of our campaigns.
