About the Appeal

Most of us would be surprised and shocked to learn the real extent of child poverty in Scotland. One in five children in Scotland lives in poverty – that’s 220,000 children across the country.

Poverty can mean many things but for children in Scotland it can mean they are going hungry, they don’t have a bed of their own to sleep in and don’t have a warm coat to wear in the winter. The STV Children’s Appeal can make a difference in the lives of these children but we need your help.

We would like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to all the people that have used their pedal power over the last years to raise money for children and young people affected by poverty.

In its first five years the STV Children’s Appeal has raised over £11.1 million. This has allowed us to make 297 big and small grants to projects across all 32 local authority areas in Scotland, providing much needed support to 59,000 children.
