Tameside Toy Appeal 2022 – Comms Pack

 Our mission is for the 1 in 4 Tameside children living in poverty
to receive a gift this Christmas.


Each year, local charity, Action Together runs the Tameside Toy Appeal. Last year you donated over 7,000 toys and gifts to Tameside children most in need. Christmas will be a very difficult time this year for many families in Tameside, particularly those living in poverty.
In response to these unprecedented times the Tameside Toy Appeal 2022 is needed now more than ever.
Our team of dedicated volunteers are integral to the success of the appeal:

You can safely donate toys at one of our local drop off points across Tameside.
You can donate online on our dedicated Just Giving Page.
Donate new and unwrapped gifts for babies to 18 year olds. All gifts donated to the Toy Appeal will be given to Tameside children living in poverty. Donate by Friday 9 December 2022. We cannot accept any second hand or soft toys.
Please support the Tameside Toy Appeal
To find out how your school, business or community group can support the Tameside Toy Appeal, please email or Tel: 0161 339 2345.

Children & Family weight management support

As we, all know the effects of COVID 19 and frequent lockdowns has meant that we have spent a significant amount of the last few years being isolated and cooped up indoors. As such, we have seen a significant rise in our Tameside children and young people suffering from increased weight gain, leading to obesity.


This is a Tier 2 weight management intervention, which supports, promotes and empowers families to implement healthy lifestyle changes. A multi-agency partnership between Tameside Early Help, Children’s Nutrition Team and Active Tameside aims at supporting children and young people that are overweight and/or obese.
There are three levels of support available: Green, Amber and Red. Each come with a different level of intervention.
Do you know any children and young people who may benefit from this support? If so, please contact myself and I will be happy to discuss the packages of support on offer.
Please contact myself on or call 07808211636
