Help us support more families this Christmas

Christmas isn’t always a happy time for families, especially if you are struggling to buy presents for the kids, put food on the table or heat your home. One in five people feel they have no-one to turn to for support but a small donation from you will mean we can be there for families on the phone, online or in person. Please donate what you can via our Just Giving page.

Help us be there for those families who need us most

Our impact

Gift a family your support this Christmas

Life is tough for so many families right now but our staff and volunteers are there for them every single day. Over the phone, online or in person. The families we help are often facing multiple difficulties. Poverty, disadvantage, isolation and poor emotional health.

Last year we helped more than 43,000 people. With your help, we can be there for so many more. Every penny we receive helps us be there for those who need us most. 

Sometimes, the smallest kindness can make the biggest difference. Please spare a thought for families who are struggling and please donate what you can via our Just Giving.

More buck for your banger

Get more buck for your banger - we’ve teamed up with Charity Car, the new scheme from the UK's largest car recycling network that allows you to turn your old car into a cash donation in support of Bullying UK, part of Family Lives. As an Official Partner of the scheme, it’s easy to donate the value of your old car to us, and they will donate 100% of the market value of your car to us. Find out more about how to turn your old banger into bucks for Family Lives. 

Send a Christmas e-card and support Family Lives

Are you planning to buy, write, and post cards for special occasions? Did you know that you can send e-cards and make a donation of the cost to us? Would you like an ethical alternative to the paper waste of cards? Send an e-card and give the cost of cards to help us continue our vital work.
