The Make a Difference Challenge is a child-led social action programme that empowers some of our youngest citizens.
It provides them with an opportunity to identify and research a social or environmental issue that they feel passionate about, then make a difference to it through awareness-raising, fundraising or taking practical action.
Over 900 schools and 26,000 children have already taken part.
The project enables primary aged children to gain a real understanding of the issues communities face, and take the lead in making a difference to them.

It has been running for more than a decade and has produced Read our case studies..
