The STV Children’s Appeal was launched in 2011 to support children and families affected by poverty across Scotland.

The STV Children’s Appeal offers practical help like food and warm clothes; creates opportunities for training and employability; and enables social and emotional support. It works closely with Scotland’s leading experts in the field of child poverty, sharing knowledge and expertise with both small community groups and national charities on their experiences of addressing the challenges of child poverty in Scotland.

Since 2011, the STV Children’s Appeal has raised over £30 million. and has provided awards to local and national projects across all 32 local authority areas in Scotland, delivering much needed support to tens of thousands of children and families.
