You could help someone like Archie.

As a toddler, it wasn’t safe for Archie to be with his mum and many traumatic events happened, including a house fire that he still talks about with terror. He is being assessed for PTSD.

Archie’s grandparents stepped in to care for him. Then last year, Archie’s grandma died, and his dad died soon after. Now his grandad, John, who is in his 70s, has sole responsibility for Archie.

Archie is very anxious about meeting new people and has little self-belief, saying “I can’t do it” and “I’m no good” about simple tasks.

We can help Archie find his confidence and feel better by finding him something fun he can do that is just for him.

He’s 10, but Archie can’t swim. If we could provide Archie with one-to-one swimming lessons he’d have fun, let go of worries, and do something energetic. And learn a new skill.

“On meeting Archie, it is impossible not to be compelled to do everything you can for him. He is capable and can learn, and he just needs the right input.  I honestly see so much potential given the right support.”
