The Kids Network is a community of children and young professionals connecting through fun, friendship and hardship for positive social change. It supports children at a crucial time in their development by providing them with a volunteer mentor.

The organisation has gone from strength to strength, gaining high-profile support from its patron Sir Quentin Blake, to legendary street artist Thierry Noir, and most recently support from one of the world’s most prolific bands, Coldplay.

As a long-time activist on issues affecting children and communities, founder Sarah Woodcock had a vision about how to go about bringing together a new generation of young professionals and children in need.

The Kids Network aims to bring communities together to connect in an age of disconnect, for positive change.

“Innovation means constantly challenging your perspective and encouraging diversity.”
