LW Theatres & War Child
A partnership rooted in a joint heritage of world class music and theatre.
LW Theatres are excited to launch an official charity partnership with War Child, to support children caught up in conflict zones.
War Child has a long association with the music and live entertainment industry. For decades, it has worked with artists, labels and the music industry to release records and put on unforgettable shows for over 30 years.
This is a partnership rooted in a joint heritage of world class music and theatre and throughout 2023, we’re set to announce exciting plans to both raise awareness and funds for a good cause.
About War Child
War Child is the only specialist charity for children affected by conflict. For more than two decades, we’ve been driven by a single goal – ensuring a safe future for every child living through war.
We aim to reach children as early as possible when conflict breaks out and support them long after the cameras have gone. We deliver life-changing services and support in communities affected by conflicts to keep children safe and help them to heal and learn for the chance of a better future.
The Work of War Child
War Child works with children, families, communities, and governments in conflict zones to protect children from danger. Whether they are moving across borders, living in their homes, on the streets or in refugee camps; they support children’s wellbeing, provide safe spaces for them to play and learn, and get the psychological support they need to process their experiences of conflict.
War Child works to ensure children’s learning continues in times of crisis. They set up temporary learning spaces, provide catch-up classes, rehabilitate schools damaged by bombs and bullets, and support teachers operating in conflict zones. They work with families and communities to ensure they have the resources and knowledge to support their children’s education.
War Child provides immediate and long-term support to young people, families and communities living through conflict. They provide families with food, cash relief and access to other life-saving essentials and support young people and caregivers with the skills they need to find apprenticeships and employment.
War Child works to ensure that challenges faced by children are understood and addressed. They boldly campaign to influence global leaders and empower young people to raise issues and campaign for change themselves.
