About this cause

Of the 32,000 children that enter the foster care system for the first time each year, over 500 live in Nottinghamshire; that is one child every 17 hours. Many of these vulnerable individuals are given a bin liner to put their possessions in. 'My Bag' eases the impact of this traumatic experience by providing a bag containing comfort items including a teddy bear, blanket, colouring book, reading book, and a water bottle amongst other things.

How this cause brings people in the community together

My Bag Charity ensures a little self worth to the most vulnerable in our community. We work closely with both the City and County Council to make sure as many children as possible receive a 'My Bag' when they enter into care.
