Why It Matters

Almost 1 in every 3 UK primary school children lives in poverty

For these children, the lack of a brand-new winter coat isn’t just about staying warm; it’s about facing ridicule, rejection, and social isolation. At Coats4Kids, we understand the devastating impact this can have on a child’s emotional well-being and academic performance.

Help us on our mission to a MILLION

Every child deserves the warmth and comfort of a winter coat

Millions of Children in Need Struggle without Basic Necessities

4.2 million primary aged children have been identified as being in need – over 1 million of which are in dire need (Data from Joseph Rowntree Report 2024). These children have never owned anything brand new.

Warming Hearts, Not Just Bodies: The Social Impact of Coats4Kids

At Coats4Kids, we recognise a harsh reality: some children face more than just the biting cold of winter. For them, the lack of a brand-new winter coat can lead to a different kind of chill – one of ridicule, rejection, and social isolation. The impact of this experience on an ostracised child can be devastating, encompassing emotions of embarrassment, sadness, and loneliness. These emotions don’t just stop at the playground; they reach into the classroom, affecting their ability to learn and thrive.

Our Challenge

Our challenge goes beyond providing physical warmth; it extends to preserving the dignity and emotional well-being of these vulnerable children. We aim to shield them from the heartache of being teased or excluded for wearing second-hand, hand-me-down coats or even no coat at all.
