Hay House UK supports Honeypot charity. Honeypot provides respite holidays and on-going outreach support to young carers and children at risk. They give them a break from demanding and stressful conditions at home and provide a safe and nurturing environment in which to develop their full potential.
In the run up to Christmas we hope that our website visitors will support this fantastic charity and the work they do.

Thankyou from the Hay House Team.
"Our vision is for every child to make the most of their one chance at childhood. Many of the children we work with care for a chronically or terminally ill loved one. Some will have been in a caring role from as young as 5 years old, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The remainder of children we work with are from homes with extreme social, financial or emotional challenges, often involving abuse or neglect. Like young carers, these children do not have the opportunity to live a normal childhood. For them, going on a trip to the cinema or to the beach is a rarity. Having a break away from their stressful home environment is virtually unknown. This is where Honeypot comes in.
A child’s journey with Honeypot begins with a holiday at Honeypot House, set in seven acres of beautiful land on the edge of the New Forest. Activities such as riding a bike, learning to swim, going to the beach, or just playing freely in the fresh air without the need to worry are often experienced for the first time. We maintain contact with each child throughout the year with birthday cards, photos, newsletters, Christmas presents and Christmas parties. The Honeypot Playbus also visits the children in their own communities up to three times a year.
We must raise around £1 million each year to provide our services, for which we receive no direct government funding; we are therefore extremely reliant on fundraising. By supporting Honeypot you will be giving the gift of time and space to these children. They will learn new life skills, build strong friendships and create lasting childhood memories that they can cherish for many years to come.
Help us help more children."
