Our Corporate Partnership with Children on the Edge
Children on the Edge exists to help forgotten children who are living on the edge of their societies across the world.
Founded more than 25 years ago by Anita Roddick, Children on the Edge focuses on children who are overlooked by governments, larger organisations, the media and the international community.
Children on the Edge works in partnership with local communities to restore the ingredients of a full childhood; creating safe, child friendly environments that generate hope, life, colour and fun. They strongly believe that children are not passive agents of charity, instead they support children to be agents of change in their own futures.
South Downs Water have sponsored the Chichester Half Marathon since 2015, helping the event to raise more than £30,000 each year for their international work. We are now extending that support as a year round corporate partner, helping to support their incredible work.
With Children on the Edge some of the most vulnerable refugee children, working children and children from marginalised people groups have access to education, pre-school centres or Child Protection Teams. Each programme uniquely responds to the specific needs of the community, and each creates a protective environment for children living “on the edge”.
