Help us overcome the COVID-19 challenges
The COVID-19 crisis has changed our world beyond recognition. Our routines are disrupted, our social contacts curtailed and we are faced with months of uncertainty and worry ahead.
We would like to offer more online and telephone therapy to students who are understandably anxious at the moment. We would also like to offer additional support to parents too, who are working so hard to support their children’s well-being. Please, will you help?
Our students are young people on the cusp of adulthood but they aren’t just experiencing the usual issues of being teenagers. They’re also dealing with bullying, bereavement, illness and many other worries. That’s why well-being is at the very heart of Red Balloon.
Will you help bring piece of mind by supporting our well-being fund?
Student bursary and hardship fund
Some children have their places at Red Balloon funded by their local authority (through an Education, Health and Care Plan) while, for others, their families have to meet the costs. Sometimes parents can’t afford it so students are forced to rely on a blend of funding sources, including our Student Bursary and Hardship Fund.
Will you make a donation to our Student bursary and hardship fund to ensure that Red Balloon is available to more vulnerable young people who need us?
Learning tools and spaces fund
Our Red Balloon Centres may not be like mainstream schools, but our students still need spaces to study in, and tools to learn with.
Will you help ensure that these vulnerable children have everything they need to get their lives back on track by donating to our Learning tools and spaces fund?
Donating to your Centre
Will you donate to one of our Centres or to Red Balloon of the Air – our online and face-to-face school?
Perhaps you have a loved one who is thriving with Red Balloon and want to say “thank you”. Or maybe you’re simply interested in supporting young people in your neighbourhood. That’s fantastic; thank you so much.
