Fair Ways Christmas Campaign

Thanks for your support…

Fair Ways are delighted to update on the results of the 2023 Care leavers Christmas appeal.

Thanks to the generosity of staff, occupiers at Lakeside, Shaping Portsmouth, and the public, Fair Ways put together an amazing 53 rucksacks and gift bags full of essentials, toiletries, warm clothes, chocolate, and Christmas gifts for care leavers in the Portsmouth area.

This was an extraordinary response to what was just a short 2-week campaign.

Working in partnership with Portsmouth City Council, over 40 bags were donated to care leavers in Portsmouth. The remaining bags were also distributed to Fair Ways care leavers with whom we have maintained relationships.

We know that these bags brought some joy at Christmas and beyond for these young care leavers.

Fair Ways would like to thank everyone who donated, whether that be items or money to the appeal – your generosity has made a real difference this Christmas.

Following the response this year, Fair Ways will look to launch a larger care leavers campaign in 2024.


“As a children’s charity, Fair Ways believes that we should support care leavers who are obliged to leave the care sector at 17 or 18 years of age. We know that Fair Ways Christmas appeal will make a difference and thank you to everyone who supported us”

Gareth Webb, Managing Director
