Who We Are

Our Purpose

Our purpose is to provide Buddy Bags to children who arrive in emergency accommodation without the essential items they need for their comfort and wellbeing.

Our Misson

Our mission is to make a difference to children who are living through a traumatic experience. By providing each child with a Buddy Bag we can help to restore a sense of safety and security.

Make a Difference

Making a donation is a simple and direct way to support our work. With our tangible cause - that benefits children in care directly - you can transform the lives of children and actually see where your support goes. We guarantee that 100% of all donations will go towards providing the Buddy Bags for children in need. Administration costs are covered by the Founders. When fundraising we endeavour to deliver Buddy bags to your local women’s refuge.
There are many ways you can raise money to help provide Buddy Bags. Remember fundraising can be done anywhere – at work, at home, on your own or as part of a group. From jumping out of a plane, dressing up as a super hero, organising a raffle, to fire walking. Buddy Bag fundraisers can do almost anything to make a difference to children who have been victims of domestic violence!
Our purpose is to provide Buddy Bags to children who arrive in emergency accommodation without the essential items they need for their comfort and wellbeing.

What people say

The bags have been a huge success here, the kids love them. We usually put one in there bedroom so when they come into Refuge it’s there for them. The mum’s have always commented on how nice they are and they have been particularly helpful for ladies who come to the Refuge with very little belongings.  Thanks again for your support. 
Our children loved the Buddy bags a short story:-  A lady Ella & her 3 children moved into our Refuge the youngest boy had no shoes and was upset. During registration we gave buddy bags. He was 3 years old. He asked if the bag was his…yes…all mine..yes he opened the  tooth bush his pyjamas…his…and his book and knitted dog…he beamed…and said…this is all mine I like my new home……we did manage to buy him shoes too….   He started Nursery yesterday wearing his new shoes and taking his book. 
Pendle Refuge
Just to let you know that the bags are absolutely brilliant. I don’t know whether you have actually ever given a child 1 yourself, but all we can say is that when we have given one to any child it has always brought a big grin to their faces and as you say they have something of their  own. Taking a teddy to bed to cuddle and a new pair of pyjamas is surprising what a difference it makes to any, children.  Thank you so, so much they are really appreciated.
