Nearly 4 children in every UK class are now likely to have a mental health difficulty - and the problem is growing. It's also a little known fact that children's well-being in parts of Cambridgeshire is amongst the very worst in the country.

Without specialist support, vulnerable children can go on to develop mental illnesses and anti-social behaviours, which puts huge pressures on local services and costs our community dear.

Blue Smile is a Cambridgeshire children's charity which provides counselling and support in schools to help children fulfil their true potential and have happier childhoods. It can quite simply be life-changing.

At a time of drastic service cuts, we rely on individual and corporate fundraising and donations. Without this, children simply won't get the help they need to turn their lives around.

There are many fun ways to get involved which are not only personally satisfying but which make a vital contribution to the children in your local community.
