STV Children's Appeal

The STV Children’s Appeal is committed to helping children and young people affected by poverty in Scotland.

The money raised by the STV Children’s Appeal helps make a real difference in the lives of Scotland’s children and young people by providing practical help like food and warm clothes; creating opportunities for training and employability; and enabling social and emotional support for those who need it most.

The charity was launched in 2011 by The Hunter Foundation and STV.  In 2013, The Wood Foundation pledged its support to the Appeal for projects in the North East.

In just nine years the Appeal has managed to raise over £21 million, allowing us to make 1102 big and small awards across all 32 local authority areas in Scotland, providing much needed support to over 79,000 children.
Every single penny raised by the STV Children’s Appeal stays in Scotland and 100% of donations are spent on the children who need it most, as all overheads are met by STV and The Hunter Foundation. In 2019, the Scottish Government once again committed to match fund the first £1m raised.
