Making Memories… Giving Hope

Get Involved

Get Involved

We can't do what we do without you! 

Every year, CHICKS provides week-long respite and wellbeing breaks for hundreds of children and young people in the UK living in difficult situations and conditions. Without the backing of our volunteers, partners and other supporters who run events, donate their services and spread the word with friends and family, we would not be able to provide so many happy childhood memories that will last a lifetime.

There are many ways you can get involved with CHICKS and make a lasting difference to the lives of young people across the country who really need it. Volunteering opportunities are available on our respite breaks, as well as in the local community at fundraising events and in our offices. Join #TeamCHICKS and challenge yourself, or nominate CHICKS as your company's Charity of the Year.
