This is how we can support you

By trekking as part of our team you’ll receive:

  • First-class service from our dedicated events team
  • The Children’s Society branded top, personalised with your name
  • Fundraising support and resources, including email updates and invaluable fundraising advice
  • The knowledge that you will be helping a wide range of children and young people who urgently need someone to be there for them, when they have nowhere left to turn
  • You’ll be doing something amazing, by taking on a challenge and something which you enjoy, whilst also doing something good to improve the lives of the UK’s most vulnerable children and young people

How your trekking benefits our work

By fundraising for us, you be joining an amazing community of people of all ages who are doing exciting, challenging and extraordinary things to change the lives of vulnerable children across the UK.

By taking part in a fundraising event for The Children’s Society, you’ll help a wide range of children who desperately need our support, from young carers and runaways escaping abuse, to those struggling in the care system and victims of child sexual exploitation/children living in poverty and neglect.

You can find out more about what we do to fight child poverty and neglect and help all children have a better chance in life. 

These are children we help

We worked with over 18,000 vulnerable children and young people last year. Our campaign wins will bring life-changing support to more than 5.6 million. To find out more information about the impact we had and our work, please read our Impact Report.

From young carers to children recovering from sexual exploitation, we have stories of just some of the children we help

Top tips for trekking 

When training and preparing for your trek, remember the following:

  • Every trek is different – have a look at the course and identify anything that you might need to train for, like hills
  • Use training plans and advice – we can direct you to relevant training plans and general tips and advice for training for a cycling event
  • Get advice when you need it – we can help with any questions or point you towards the right direction with experts or experienced trekkers
  • Stay safe – this may seem an obvious goal but our training team can provide advice,to help keep you out of harm’s way during training and on your trek
  • Avoid injury – from pre- and post-trek exercises to sticking to the group plan, we can support you
  • Stay motivated – If you’re trekking for the first time or pushing yourself to do your first group trekking event, staying motivated can be a challenge. We can help you find what motivates you along with the children and young people you will be supporting and offer ways to keep in touch with our events team and also help build communities of fellow trekkers
