Our Major Supporters


It is only through the generosity of many funders and philanthropic trusts, individuals and organisations that Child Matters is able to continue to undertake its work. We are extremely grateful not only for the financial support but for the invaluable time, expertise and resources that have been so generously donated to help Child Matters protect children. We extend our sincere and warm thanks to all those who have contributed in so many ways. We believe that everyone can do something to help protect children, and this generosity exemplifies this belief.

We are especially indebted to our largest and longest-standing funders and supporters.  There is no way we can come close to adequately thanking them or repaying the debt we owe them.

The success of child protection courses relies heavily on the expertise and participation by experts throughout the nation. We are very grateful to the lawyers, doctors, specialists and staff from CYF and Police who are available time and time again to speak at child protection courses throughout the country. They greatly enhance the quality of the programmes and provide connections and introductions to local networks which are crucial in child protection work.

In addition to the valuable contribution, many of these people also provide their services at no charge, and in doing
so make a greatly valued contribution to Child Matters.
