Lapwing Resilience Campaign

Resilience offers help for disadvantaged children in Suffolk. The project aims to raise funds for 20 + children from years 6 – year 13 who have experienced or at risk of:

  • Bereavement
  • Trauma
  • Neglect
  • Abuse
  • Bullying
  • Radicalisation

Resilience offers individual programs for disadvantaged children to engage in during the summer period and beyond. These personalised, educational activities will enable children to gain confidence, rebuild their self-esteem and regain their trust in adults. Without these fundamental attributes children struggle to: learn, build healthy relationships with adults and their peers and, often turn to crime, anti-social behaviour and isolation at a time when support is most needed.

Lapwing have identified that the summer months are a crucial time in which to reach and support children facing these negative life experiences. From July to August there is no funding to support these children meaning they fall further behind. For students from disadvantaged backgrounds this can be even more exaggerated. Through these tailored one to one sessions children learn resilience and the ability to turn their lives around.

Funds urgently sought

Lapwing are looking to raise funds to offer Resilience to 20 children from the local area and we will be working with local schools to identify those who are particularly vulnerable and will most benefit from the Resilience program.

Due to the lack of Government funding available and we are looking to corporates and the public for donations to help make this happen. Children remain at risk unless funding is urgently found.  With the summer fast approaching now is the time for us to reach out and seek your support. We really appreciate your donation.
