A strategy for play at the heart of every crisis.

Clowns Without Borders UK wants a world where every child, irrespective of their circumstances, has the freedom to experience joy and the wonders of childhood. This is the heart of what we do.

Our Bold Vision

Our vision is ambitious – a world where every child experiences the transformative power of laughter and play. Over the next 10 years, we want to scale our activities to reach 1 million children. This includes new programmes in the UK, scaling activities across migrant and refugee communities in Europe, post-conflict communities in the Middle East and displaced children within Africa. Powered by a global network of partners dedicated to uplifting young lives, a partnership with Clowns Without Borders UK has the potential to change lives.
