Who are TiNY?
TiNY Individuals Need You C.I.C.
TiNY (or TiNY Individuals Need You) are a Community Interest Company or CIC. We are established to provide opportunities for underprivileged children in the UK to escape the issues surrounding their lives, whether they be economic, social, physical, mental or behavioural issues by providing holidays, free of charge.
Providing holidays for children
As a result of our fundraising we look to purchase sited, static homes on holiday parks across the UK. Typically our projects have a budget target of £15000 to £40000 per site. Each purchased caravan allows us to provide up to 72 holiday packages. By purchasing these sites we can ensure that all the facilities required are within the “home” and maintain that holiday feel by virtue of the locations of the static homes which are predominently based in seaside, tourism rich areas.
Providing days out for children
We also provide days out for families with hardship. In this day in age it costs money to do almost anything these days. So we provide all sorts of days out whether it is a day out at a theme park, sports venue, Ice rink, Bowling, Castle visits or even down to the beach, we aim to provide this to families who struggle financially. This benefits children and families to become closer as a unit and do things they would not normally be able to do. Living standards have grown dramatically and we have spoken to a number of schools and over 10 in a classroom of 30 are children living in poverty. In 2015 there were 3.9 million children living in poverty in the UK. We can’t stop poverty but we are trying to help as much as we can to give some a break from the normal everyday issues.
