Make a Difference
We aim to level the playing field for children and young people at a disadvantage in relation to their peers.
Make a Difference is a small charity. We rely heavily on our Board members and volunteers and Board members personally meet with every client to assess their needs and decide the best way to help.
We are directly connected with the people we help.
We have very low overheads and expenses, for example, no paid for office space.

Those who have a parent who has a mental illness that is having an impact on the well-being of their family
Those still in primary school who have experienced multiple long suspensions from school
