About the UK programme
We support Save the Children’s vision where children in the UK live free from poverty and keep learning, so they can become who they want to be. Save the Children work closely with families, primary schools, health services, local authorities and children’s services, to help transform the home learning environment for children. Since 2013, GSK employees have supported some of the UK’s poorest families with young children with their generous donations, helping children to reach their full potential.
Over four million children currently live in poverty in the UK, and the Coronavirus outbreak has further illuminated the underlying fragility of family support and household budgets, putting even more families on the brink of poverty. Therefore in April 2020, we took the decision to re-direct employee funds to support Save the Children’s Emergency Response to COVID-19, in order to respond to the urgent needs of struggling families with young children across the UK.
