THE NATIONAL COUNCIL FOR ONE PARENT FAMILIES * NCOPF * now known as GINGERBREAD

Founded in 1918 as the National Council for the Unmarried Mother and her Child, NCOPF aims to improve the economic, legal and social position of one-parent families. The National Council runs an information service to lone parents, other organizations, local authorities and the media. It runs projects in specific areas of the UK to enable lone parents to return to employment. It also provides rights-based training for professionals working with lone parents, campaigns and lobbies to change the law and to improve provisions for lone parents and their children.

CHILDREN'S COUNTRY HOLIDAYS FUND (Incorporated)

The Children's Country Holidays Fund provides 10 day holidays in the countryside for underprivileged London children aged 5 to 12. Their backgrounds include poverty, neglect and physical or emotional abuse. Most come from one-parent families and overcrowded, poor quality housing; unemployment and financial debt are standard. Some children have never seen the seaside or the countryside before. None would have the chance of a holiday without CCHF or the generosity of supporters. Funds are always urgently needed - please help.

FIGHT FOR SIGHT

Fight for Sight is the UK's leading charity dedicated to funding world-class research into the prevention and treatment of blindness and eye disease. Since 1965, we have been supporting research at universities and hospitals throughout the UK including 1 million funding for the research unit at the children's centre of Moorfields Eye Hospital.
In the UK, 25,000 children are affected by sight loss. As part of a 6 million research programme, we are currently supporting work at Queen's University Belfast looking at ways to prevent sight loss in premature babies and working with researchers at the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology and the University of Manchester to find new ways to treat inherited eye conditions.

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD

Samaritan's Purse specialises in helping children to reach out and make a difference overseas. By far our biggest project is the Operation Christmas Child shoebox appeal. Hundreds of thousands of schoolchildren pack shoeboxes full of toys, sweets and other gifts, and give 2 to help transport them to needy children in Eastern Europe and beyond. By giving, our children not only help others, they also start to understand the joys of sharing what you have. Other projects include longer term developmental work, including the building of a hospice for child AIDS victims in Romania.

HUMAN SCALE EDUCATION

Human Scale Education promotes an approach to learning which is concerned with the whole child - the creative, emotional and moral sides as well as the academic and the physical. Key factors include the relationships within and the size of the educational setting. Children learn best in an environment in which they feel secure and supported - a human scale environment. We support parents and teachers who wish to set up their own schools. We are also working to encourage human scale settings in large schools.

deafPLUS (1971)

Deafness is an isolating disability, presenting real barriers when competing in education, work and social integration. DeafPLUS works to integrate deaf and hearing people through training, education, information and family contact. We also offer speech training to profoundly deaf children. When Laura, who is six, first used our specialised equipment she was delighted to "hear" the effects of her voice on the screen. She now understands that by making certain sounds the penguin will reach the top of the iceberg or the clown's nose will light up! Perhaps you would like to help us to help Laura and other children like her?
