Most children want to see and have a relationship with their non-resident parent and their family and this time in their lives can be very confusing and upsetting for children, so we thought it would be helpful if we could give them a book with a story they could identify with, which would help them to make sense of their experiences.
Last year the Roberts Centre accommodated over 400 children in our temporary accommodation in Portsmouth. In a year when there over 70,000 homeless children in England. Losing their homes and moving into temporary accommodation can be very confusing and upsetting for children, so we thought it would be helpful if we could give them a book with a story they could identify with, which would help them to make sense of their experiences.
One in six UK adults or 8.2 million people are ‘over-indebted’ and struggle to keep on top of their borrowing. Parents were 50 per cent more likely to be in problem debt than those without children, with the figures rising for those with three or more children. One in five families with three or fewer children were vulnerable to problem debt while this increases to one in four for families with three or more children.

Everything changes for Harry Pritchett when young evacuees from London arrive at his village to be sheltered during the Second World War. Most of the children quickly find homes, but nobody wants Thomas, who seems weak, untidy and short-sighted. At school, too, Thomas is teased and finds it difficult to make friends, but Harry helps him out and sticks close by him through thick and thin. Soon they begin to share the most exciting adventures, from the crash-landing of a fighter plane to a visit from the police. But why has Harry’s best friend Emily begun to act so strangely?…
Written and donated by a long term supporter of The Roberts Centre.
When a knight appears at the supermarket car park asking for help, Martin assumes that there is a television crew hiding nearby, recording the prank. But after he is whisked off to a castle on the gallant mare, Grey Lady, he finds himself in a medieval world where the knight, Sir Jeffrey Giles, faces a great challenge. As Sir Jeffrey’s new squire, Martin soon finds himself on a quest to save the castle.
Children and young people all have hopes and dreams. Our challenge is to support children to have experiences which at the very least, have a special place in their childhood memory box or, with a bit of luck, maybe even inspire them to follow a dream. So we thought it would be helpful if we could give them a book with a story they could identify with, which would help them to make sense of their experiences.
