Help Unicef change children’s lives

Charitable trusts and foundations play an important role in helping Unicef reach, and improve the lives of, vulnerable children throughout the world.

If you’re a trustee, have contact with a trust, or perhaps are setting one up then we would love to hear from you.

Why support Unicef?

Unicef ensures more of the world’s children are fed, vaccinated, educated and protected than any other organisation. We have done more to influence laws, policies and customs to help protect children than anyone else in history. Unicef works in over 190 countries to build a safer world for every child.

Our focus on long-term and sustainable development is complemented by effective, rapid humanitarian aid for children during wars and disasters. The way we work is different from other organisations. Unicef supports governments to fulfil the rights of every child. Everything we do is based on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the most widely ratified international human rights treaty in history.
