Thrive is a charity based in Chipping Norton, aiming to support local children living in desperate circumstances. The charity works to raise awareness of and offer support to local children living below the poverty line and or living in challenging circumstances.
The main objective of Thrive is to provide practical support to these children of struggling families in North Oxfordshire who, for whatever reason, have a genuine, urgent need. Usually, this need would be for a specific basic item, for example toiletries, a bed to sleep on, basic clothing (that most of us take for granted) or a rug to cover a bare floor following a sudden home move. Each referral is different and all are considered.
Contact with the charity for support should be made through a health professional, social worker or pastoral support worker within the school.
