Wilcocks & Wilcocks is a proud corporate partner of Save the Children. By saving children, we are helping to make the world a better place and wealthier all round. Children are our future, and we can make a real difference to their lives.
Save the Children exists to help every child reach their full potential. In more than 100 countries including the UK, they make sure children stay safe, healthy and keep learning. They find new ways to reach children who need them most, no matter where they’re growing up.
For a century, Save the Children has stood up for children’s rights and made sure their voices are heard. Voices like Faisal.
Faisal (name changed to protect identity) attends a class at an Early Learning Centre (ELC) in Za’atari camp for Syrian refugees, Jordan
Five-year-old Faisal wishes he could fly. He likes to pretend he’s a superhero and jump from the furniture.
Bubbly, happy and energetic, Faisal is just like millions of other children. But he lives in a refugee camp in Jordan, where life can be tough. Luckily for Faisal, his big brother Bilal is there to look out for him.
The boys build forts, play with toys and run races. “I let Faisal win, because when he’s happy I am happy as well,” Bilal says. They play with their favorite teddy, too – a bear that Bilal loves because it travelled from Syria with him.
Save the Children support refugee families like theirs so that children everywhere are free to just be children. For Faisal, that means climbing, running, jumping, drawing, painting… “I paint everything!” He says. “Especially bears.”
Save the Children in the UK
“Our fight for children here in the UK goes back over 90 years. Yet even today, many of the UK’s poorest children start primary school struggling to speak in full sentences, express themselves or understand simple instructions from parents, teachers, and friends.”
“These are the skills children need so they can thrive when they get to the classroom. Evidence shows that children who start behind often struggle to catch up. They are much less likely to do well at school or to succeed in the world of work.”
“We focus on tackling poverty and providing opportunity during the critical first years of life, from birth through to the start of primary school. During their early years, children learn so much – discovering through play, starting to speak, and understanding others.”
“If we can make a change at the earliest point, we can help make sure no child falls behind.”— Tom Rahilly, Director of UK Programmes.
Clive Sanders, Director of Community & Regional Corporate Partnerships: “We are delighted to be partnering with Wilcocks & Wilcocks. Save the Children’s work is only possible thanks to the support of partners such as Wilcocks & Wilcocks and their amazing commitment to make the world a better place for children. Together we can do so much more than acting alone. With Wilcocks & Wilcocks’ support we’re determined to help every child become who they want to be.”
