This Christmas, you can help us keep hope alive

Young people's hopes and happiness are being threatened by abuse, exploitation and neglect. The pandemic has turned their lives upside down. They’ve spent months in lockdown, unable to go to school or see their wider families. 

We are stepping up the fight for young people’s hope, at a time when it’s more at risk than ever before. And you can help, by offering your words of support this Christmas.

Words of hope

Things are tough right now, life is like a roller coaster full of ups and downs but tough times pass and things will get better. Try and find some good in every day, go for a walk and look at nature, do something you like doing. Things will get better, life is good, just hang on in there and don’t give up. Lots of love ❤️

One day at a time you will learn and grow, and with that you will gain courage to remain strong. Use that strength to turn into something great in the future. You may help someone else one day.
sometimes we have to face tough things in our path but keep going to reach the good. Keep only happy thoughts and smiles this Christmas. Stay hopeful♥️

You matter. You’re special and you being here to experience all the good things in life means a lot to all of us who care about you. No matter what cards you’ve been dealt with in life just know that those cards don’t define you. You’re never truly alone. Remember that 🖤

If it currently feels like the worse time in your life, that means that things can only get better. Keep pushing through because all of the amazing memories, all of the laughs and all of the smiles that are coming your way will be worth it, trust me. I may not know you personally but I know that you are strong enough to get through this.

Ruby

Never give up!! You are amazing and things get better, something I never thought when I was a teenager but it does get better. You are so resilient, strong, brave and there are people who care and love you! Be the best version of yourself unapologetically, love who you are because you rock \m/ xxx

Things may be tough right now but it won't always be, even if it seems like that's the case. Know that there are always people to help, even if it seems at first there isn't. Look for those people, talk to them, reach out, let them help when they try. Know that you are loved, there are people that care, and you are stronger than you think xxx

Fighting for hope

We restore, protect and strengthen young people’s hope. Because hope matters, especially for those who have it toughest of all. 

We work with young people for as long as it takes, providing one-to-one support so that they can make sense of things and recover. 

Working closely with the public and partnering with professionals like the police and teachers, together we tackle the impacts of child sexual and criminal exploitation.   

With your help, we can give them the specialist support they need to overcome their trauma and live a life they never thought possible. 

All that positivity gets rid of the negativity and you can sort of grow
