About Friends For Families (Sevenoaks)

We are a small charity working in the Sevenoaks area to help families facing financial hardship. We provide direct, practical assistance to people who have been identified by Children’s Services as needing help which can’t be provided by central or local government: we step in to help to fill that gap.


We believe that it is important to address the need on our own doorstep. We want to let struggling families know that their neighbours care, and to demonstrate that care in a practical, immediate way. If you need shoes for your children’s growing feet or a bed for them to sleep in, you need that help quickly and without jumping through bureaucratic hoops to get it.


We believe in practical compassion ‐ empathy needs to be backed by action. We hold out a helping hand to families who are experiencing tough times, and we show them that they have not been abandoned by the people around them, by providing them with concrete help to improve their living conditions.


We believe that children deserve the opportunity to do well at school and in life, and that children who have a proper bed to sleep in, suitable clothes and shoes to wear, and a chance to participate in their school and community are more likely to do well at school and in life. Children who grow up in poverty miss out on things that most children take for granted, and we want to do something about that for local children.

What makes us wonderful?

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!
