The world is changing. And it's tough on our children. Bullying, boredom, substance abuse, family break ups, mental health issues, poverty and neglect are all issues that children on our doorstep are facing every day.

The good news is on our Island, we've got the capabilities we need to make the Isle of Man one of the best places in the world to be born, raised and live.

For almost 150 years The Children's Centre has been putting children, young people and families first by giving them chance to feel safe, learn, play, stay connected with their family and have a happy childhood that every young person deserves.

But there is a problem

It costs over £3000 every day for us to support over 5800 children a year. Right now we have a waiting list. There's not capacity to help everyone who needs us. This means that some children in need will have to wait to access our services.

And even then we may not be able to help everyone. For these children, every day counts.

Help us to turn this picture around.

• 1st June 2016 is International Children's Day
