Local Charity Partners

First Days First Days

With 25% of children in Berkshire classed as living in relative poverty, First Days works with professional services to ensure that these children have access to the everyday essentials they need. Families need our help for various reasons, including ill health, domestic violence, employment problems, housing issues or refugee status to name a few – we help by supplying everything from nappies, toiletries and beds to toys, pushchairs and school uniforms.
