CARIS Camden Families is a grassroots charity which supports homeless children and their parents living in hostel accommodation in the London Borough of Camden.
We offer resident children a range of hostel-based play and learning opportunities in term time, and a trips and outings programme to the whole family during the school holidays. Through practical intervention, we aim to mitigate some of the disadvantage and stress that children and their parents face when living in overcrowded, under-resourced and insecure accommodation.
Every penny donated will go directly into supporting our homeless families. Please donate to support our cause.

The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
