Making A Difference
Autumn Appeal 2017
Who are CCS?
Think-Pair-Share
What is poverty?
Matthew 25.35-40
The Catholic Children's Society
Read through the five stories about children living in London.
As you read, fill in the Activity 1 Table in your workbook.
Emily
Emily is four years old. She lives with her mum Donna and her little brother Ben who is six months old. Her mum Donna moved the family to London a few months ago. They do not know anyone in the area and they do not feel very safe. Emily feels very alone.

Chloe
Chloe is very worried. It is nearly the end of term and everybody in class is getting really excited about the school holidays. However, Chloe is not excited. While her mum goes to work, Chloe will be spending six weeks in her house alone. That is not what really worries her though. Chloe knows that when she goes back to school everybody will be talking about the places they went to and the activities they did during the holidays. She does not know what she will say.
Eli
Eli is ten years old. Eli lives with his dad. They were recently moved by the local council from their house to a smaller flat. Their last house had furniture in it already, so when they moved they had to leave the beds, chairs and tables. Their new house is completely empty. They have no money to buy any furniture.
Jack
It is nearly Christmas. Jack’s mum Anna always tries to give him a normal Christmas with a present and Christmas dinner, but last year Anna could not even afford to heat the house, let alone buy a present. Jack feels very guilty for wanting a toy for Christmas when his mum is struggling.
Nasir is six years old. His teacher and mum have noticed that he has stopped talking to the other children in his class. He is finding it difficult to concentrate in lessons.
Nasir's parents recently separated and he is finding it difficult to live at home without his dad. He has not spoken to his mum or teachers because he does not want to bother them.

Nasir
Emily and her family were helped by the Catholic Children's Society's St Francis Family Centre
The St Francis Family Centre in Poplar provides:
A day nursery
A toy library
Help for parents and carers
Jack and his family were helped by The Catholic Children's Society's Christmas Gift Appeal
For Emily and her family, St Francis gave them a chance to meet other families in the area
For our Christmas Gift Appeal, people donate presents, food and gift vouchers.

We put these gifts into boxes and give them to the families who need them most.
Jack did not have to ask his mum for a toy. The box full of gifts and food meant that they could both have a Christmas to remember!
Chloe and her family were helped by the St Francis Family Centre too!
The centre also organises day trips and Summer holidays for the families it works with.
Chloe and her mum were able to go on their first ever holiday. She did so many activities that she had lots to talk about when she went back to school.
Eli and his family were helped by the Catholic Children's Society's Crisis Fund
The Crisis Fund provides emergency help for children and their families who are living in poverty. This might mean giving them money for food, furniture or to pay household bills
When Eli's teacher saw the empty house he and his father were living in, Eli's Head Teacher asked CCS for help. We gave them money to buy furniture such as chairs and beds.
Nasir was helped by the Catholic Children's Society's ConnectEd service
ConnectEd is a school counselling service. The counsellors talk to children who may be experiencing problems in school or at home.
One of our therapists met with Nasir for one lesson a week. The therapist talked through his problems on a one-to-one basis, and eventually he was able to talk to his mum about the separation. After a while, he was also able to talk to his friends again at school and concentrate in class.
Who do CCS help?
How can we make a difference?
This autumn, we will be looking at the work of the Catholic Children's Society (CCS)
CCS is a Catholic Charity that works to help local children living in poverty
Over the next four lessons, we will complete different activities to discover:
Who are CCS?
How can we make a difference?
We will be looking at how CCS are working to help children in our diocese
We will also be thinking about how we can live out CCS values and help our local charity!
Reflect . . .
What could we do to raise money for CCS?
Write down at least one idea on your post-it note
Lord Jesus,

Thank you for teaching us the importance of helping others. Let us think of those children who are living in poverty right now, perhaps in our class, our school or in our community. Give us strength as we work to help them this autumn and live out your teachings.

Amen
What are the Corporal Works of Mercy?
To feed the hungry
To give drink to the thirsty
To clothe the naked
To bury the dead
To shelter the homeless
To comfort the sick
To visit the imprisoned
Who do CCS help?
"I was hungry and you fed me, thirsty and you gave me a drink; I was a stranger and you received me in your homes, naked and you clothed me; I was sick and you took care of me, in prison and you visited me.'


Jesus said . . .
The righteous will then answer him, 'When, Lord, did we ever see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you a drink? When did we ever see you a stranger and welcome you in our homes, or naked and clothe you? When did we ever see you sick or in prison, and visit you?' The king will reply, 'I tell you, whenever you did this for one of the least important of these members of my family, you did it for me!'"
What does Jesus mean by this?
CCS help children and families of all faiths and none
Look at the photos on your desk.

Discuss each photo in your groups.
What can you see?
Does this child look like they live in poverty?
Why do you think this?
What questions would you like to ask this child?

Catholic Children's Society
Your Task
Tomas, Marija, James and Sara all live in the Diocese of Southwark.
You will each be given information about one of these people.
Imagine that you are that person.
Read the information box at the top of your worksheet.
You need to use all the information on your desk to decide:
Where you will live
How you will travel places
Which bills you will pay
Where you will do your supermarket shopping
How much you will spend on clothes
What leisure activities you would like to do
If you would like to go on holiday
If you would like to save money
Remember- you must stick to your budget!
Have you stuck to your budget?
Did you find it difficult to stick to your budget?
Extension Questions
If you had an extra £300 a month, what would you spend it on?

Were you surprised by the price of anything?
Now imagine this. You are ready to move into your new home, you are sticking to your budget. But then . . .
It breaks down. The mechanic needs £600 to fix it.
Did you decide to get a scooter/car/van?
Marija/James/Sara . . .
Your child needs a new school uniform that costs £100. It will not be covered by your clothing budget.
You realise that your new home needs furniture. It will cost at least £500 to furnish your home.
Tomas/Marija/James/Sara . . .
It is a cold winter. Your gas and electricity bills are £200 higher than expected.
Tomas/Marija/James/Sara . . .
Tomas/Sara . . .
You and your partner find out that you are going to have another baby. Do you need a new home? More money for shopping? Clothing? Leisure activities?
How is your budget looking now?
Many families in the Southwark Diocese are experiencing financial pressures. Most people face difficult months now and again. But for families living in poverty, keeping their home and providing enough food can be a constant struggle.
The Crisis Fund provides emergency help for families living in poverty.
The Crisis Fund provides money to families who are in need of essential items, such as basic furniture, food or clothing.
Money for the Crisis Fund will come from you and other schools across the diocese.
Every pound that you donate will go into the Southwark Crisis Fund.
Who do CCS help?
Do you remember these photos?
Which children did you think looked like they lived in poverty?

Poverty

being without enough of something, for example not having enough food or money

Do you remember this Bible passage?
Matthew 25.35-40
"I was hungry and you fed me, thirsty and you gave me a drink; I was a stranger and you received me in your homes, naked and you clothed me; I was sick and you took care of me, in prison and you visited me.'


Jesus said . . .
The righteous will then answer him, 'When, Lord, did we ever see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you a drink? When did we ever see you a stranger and welcome you in our homes, or naked and clothe you? When did we ever see you sick or in prison, and visit you?' The king will reply, 'I tell you, whenever you did this for one of the least important of these members of my family, you did it for me!'"
Reflect . . .
This autumn, we will be helping children just like Eli
The money we raise for the Catholic Children's Society will go into the Southwark Crisis Fund.
When someone experiences emotional poverty, they find it difficult to cope with situations. They often feel alone and vulnerable. CCS works in schools to help children experiencing emotional poverty.
This is Toby. When you look at Toby, you may not think that he is living in poverty. But he is one of thousands of children within our Diocese living in emotional poverty.
Task
Listen to the following story. As you listen, write down your responses on your worksheet.
We can also help children like Toby.
The Crisis Fund
This is Sara's daughter, Aisha
Sara, Aisha and their family were helped by the Crisis Fund.
Where do the Corporal Works of Mercy come from?
The work of CCS is inspired by the Corporal Works of Mercy. But how?
1. Write the Corporal Works of Mercy in Circle 1
2. In Circles 2 and 3, write down what we should do to carry out these Works of Mercy in our community
3. In Circles 4-7 write down what you will do to carry out these Works of Mercy
You are going to design a poster for the school.
The poster will help children who are experiencing emotional poverty.
The poster needs to explain:
1. What emotional poverty is
2. What pupils should do if they feel alone
3. What the whole school should do to help one another
Make the poster as eye-catching as possible!
In silence, move around the classroom and look at everybody's posters.

Choose at least one idea that you like from someone else's poster.


Oliver is nine years old. He lives with his mum and five year old brother. In May, the family’s landlord decided to increase their rent. The family did not have enough money to pay their rent and were told they had to leave their home within a month.

They managed to find a new two bedroom flat that the family could afford, but the flat was completely unfurnished. Oliver’s family moved in, but Oliver’s mum did not have enough money to buy any furniture.

For weeks, Oliver, his mum and little brother slept huddled in blankets on the floor, without even a mattress to sleep on. They had no fridge to keep fresh food and no oven to cook meals. All of Oliver’s mum’s money had to go on food and household bills.

Oliver and his little brother were sleeping very badly and were coming into school hungry.
Oliver’s Head Teacher became concerned about them. He arranged a meeting with Oliver’s mum to chat about what had been happening. Oliver’s Head Teacher contacted CCS and applied for help from the Crisis Fund.

CCS were able to buy the family beds, bedding, a fridge, and an oven.

Ruby is 14 years old. Ruby lived with her mum and dad. Her dad became very ill, and had to be taken to a special hospital in Birmingham. Ruby and her mum found it very difficult to travel to Birmingham. Ruby’s mum was working three jobs to keep their house. They did not have a car and could not afford the train or bus tickets.

Ruby’s Head Teacher found out what was happening and contacted CCS for help. We were able to use money from our Crisis Fund to help pay for transport costs for Ruby and her mother.

Sadly, after a month of being in hospital, Ruby’s dad passed away. The family were trying to grieve for their father but were stressed and worried about trying to find over £1000 for the funeral.

Ruby’s Head Teacher contacted CCS again. We were able to give the family money towards the funeral costs.

Oliver's Story
Ruby's Story
Ellie is six years old. She lives with her mum, dad and little sister. Three months ago, Ellie's dad lost his job. The family could not pay their rent so they were evicted from their flat. Ellie's family stayed with one of her dad's friends for two months. Five of them shared a one bedroom flat.

One night Ellie’s dad's friend told them to leave. They had nowhere to go and had to sleep on the streets that night.
Ellie's Head Teacher found out what was happening and called the Catholic Children's Society the next day.

With money from the Crisis Fund, CCS were able to pay for temporary accommodation for Ellie and her family.

CCS then contacted the Council on the family's behalf and within days they were given a new home.

However, their new flat was completely unfurnished. With money from the Crisis Fund, CCS were also able to buy the family beds and a washing machine.

Two months ago, Toby joined your class at school. He was quiet from the start, not talking to any of you and refusing to answer questions in lessons. When one of your friends tried to talk to Toby last week, he shouted at your friend and shoved him into a wall.
How do you feel about Toby?
Why?
Toby had more angry outbursts at home. When he became angry he would hurt himself, banging his head against the wall or biting his hand. This has led to significant scarring.
How do you feel about Toby?
Toby's mum had passed away six months ago. Toby had not spoken about how he was feeling after losing his mum. He found it too painful to talk about so ended up getting angry with himself and those around him.
How do you feel about Toby?
Why?
Why?
What help does Toby need?
Toby was helped by CCS's ConnectEd service.

Toby was asked if he would like to go to therapy sessions at school. He agreed, and began seeing a ConnectEd therapist every week.

Toby enjoyed spending time one-to-one with a therapist. After a few weeks, he began to talk about his feelings with the therapist.

The therapist also met with Toby's dad, explaining to him how Toby was feeling and different ways Toby's dad could help.

Toby's teacher noticed a difference in Toby's behaviour straight away. Toby was starting to answer questions in class. He started talking to his classmates.

What is emotional poverty?
It's a bit like an iceberg. On the surface, it may not look like much . . .
But underneath where no one can see, there is so much more going on!
