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.

Having worked with Children on the Edge for the past 2 years on the Chichester Half Marathon, we wanted to get further involved in supporting the invaluable work they do, helping the most vulnerable and forgotten children across the globe. As a local company we always like to pledge our support locally and are delighted to become a Corporate Partner of Children on the Edge in 2017. Children on the Edge are a professional and passionate organization and we are very much looking forward to getting our project underway!
— Will Windsor, Managing Director, South Downs Water

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.

South Downs Water have been fantastic sponsors of the Chichester Half Marathon in recent years and we are excited to build on this further and welcome their support as corporate partners for Children on the Edge. We are delighted that South Downs Water will be helping bring hope, life, colour and fun to some of the world’s most marginalised children
— Eloise Armstrong, Fundraising Manager, Children on the Edge

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”.
