4in10 Events 

4in10 run events both for and collaboratively with our members. From practical, skills-based events to capacity building workshops, we aim to provide a diverse and useful offering for our members. Become a member for free to hear about and get involved in 4in10 events and activities.




We have set up a Policy Forum within 4in10, to bring members together to discuss all things relating to policy and child poverty in London. In Oct 2023 our Strategic Programme Manager, Katherine, joined the London Partnership Board as a representative of the community and voluntary sectors which provides us with an excellent opportunity to feed into high level strategic discussions about the big issues affecting London and we propose to use these meetings to ensure that she is reflecting the membership’s views in these discussions. Sign up to join the mailing list for the forum here.  The Forum meets quarterly and there will be no formal membership – any 4in10 member will be welcome to attend on a meeting by meeting basis.

Fundraising to end child poverty: Back to Basics

Recording of training available to members, please email Emily to access it -emily.barker@4in10.org.uk

Online – Free

The session will cover the following topics:

• How to find funders? Assessing suitable grants and making sure it’s a good use of resources.

• How to apply for funding? Taking time to prepare and review your core documents: developing a good case of support, budget and cash flow, and keeping track of your trusts and foundation database.

• What do funders look for? My experience sitting on funding panels: making sure your numbers make sense, narrative and being honest e.g. showing your charity, is a good investment.


4in10 Open Coffee Mornings

Coffee Morning: Responding to the harm of hygiene poverty for children

19th September 2024, 10:00am-11:00pm

This latest Coffee Morning will focus on the way in which In Kind Direct, a 4in10 member is helping individuals all across London (and the UK) access crucial hygeine products in response to the high costs of living families are facing.

They will also be sharing their own research on the impact of poverty on families unable to access hygeine products and hear from other members about important issues to focus on in future research. – https://www.inkinddirect.org/reports/hygiene-poverty-briefing-spring-2024

This coffee morning will introduce InKind Direct to the 4in10 network as well as help to facilitate a discussion on how best to help meet families’ needs in a direct, tangible way.

In Kind Direct is a UK charity focused on distributing consumer products, donated by companies, to charitable organisations in their network to ensure that everyone has access to the products they need to keep clean, safe and well.
