Fegans has been championing childhood and transforming mental health since 1870.
The exhibition will take you through its story, from the work of its founder James Fegan, through to the support services the charity now offers children and families in the South East today.
Inspired by his Christian faith, James Fegan started supporting and housing boys living on the streets in 1870. Follow the incredible journey of Fegans, the children’s charity, as it has evolved and developed over the years. From children’s homes, child migration, and finding family, the Fegans’ story is one of great historical and cultural value.
Fegans today supports over 400 children a week through counselling and many more families through their recently launched Parents Supporting Parents initiative. Together with the help of donors and volunteers, they reach out and transform and protect childhoods throughout the South East. They have a wide range of family and professional events throughout the exhibition, and many ways in which you can, donate, or join their team, in their quest to help children nationwide.
