More About Buddy Bag Foundation

Imagine if your whole world changed in a day. Imagine having to leave everything you own and everyone you know.


A matter of fact

  • You may be shocked to learn that 48,000 children require emergency accommodation in the UK each year.

  • Children fleeing violent situations often have to leave home quickly, without the chance to collect basic items. These children arrive in emergency accommodation with just the clothes they are wearing.

Buddy Bags for Children in Emergency Care

We have created the Buddy Bag Foundation in response to the rising number of children who enter emergency care after fleeing violent situations at home. Restoring a sense of safety and security into a child’s life during a traumatic time is one of the first steps to recovery. By providing these children with a few essential items, we can help make the transition into emergency care a little easier.

To support children in this situation Buddy Bag Foundation have created the Buddy Bag to provide comfort when all else has been removed. Since 2015 they have delivered over 30,000 Buddy Bags and engaged with over 3,000 volunteers.

What is a Buddy Bag?

A Buddy Bag is a backpack that contains all the essential items a child needs. They include toiletries, pyjamas, socks and underwear. They also include comfort items such as a book and a teddy bear. A Buddy Bag is something a child can call their own, no matter where they go. Buddy Bags are tailored to suit babies and children according to age groups and gender and cater specifically for children aged 0-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12 and 13-16 years old.
