Support Us

Campus is run entirely by volunteers, benefiting from over 25,000 hours of volunteer time every year, so our administration costs are very low (less than 5% of total running costs).  We charge nothing to families or social services, so all money is raised through our own fundraising efforts and donations from individuals or charitable bodies.

As we are a small charity, all donations have a huge impact. Without your donations, we would not be able to provide desperately-needed holidays for over 150 children every year. Every penny we receive helps us to achieve our mission and we are incredibly grateful for your support.

How your donation helps:
£10 pays for a day’s activities for a child on Residential Project
£30 pays for a child to attend Winter Project
£50 pays for a week’s worth of activities for a child on Residential Project
£280 pays for a child to come on Residential Project or £150 pays for a child to come on a Hippocampus Project
£750 gives five children a holiday on the Hippocampus Project, inclusive of all Project costs

Campus has played a huge part in our summer this year not only for my brother and sister (who we look after) but also for our own birth children as we got to spend some much needed quality time together while [campus child] and [campus child] were enjoying their amazing trip with campus. We are very grateful for that special time we got to have together and [campus child] really had the best time with us as well. So thank you from our family.
