Flying Start is the global charity partnership between British Airways and Comic Relief UK – a partnership whose aim is to raise money to help children living incredibly tough lives in the UK and around the world.
Every child deserves hope and the chance of a bright future, which is what Flying Start is all about. Every spare bit of change raised through the programme will go to children’s projects in the cities where we fly.
How the money is spent
All donations made to Flying Start will go directly to help transform children's lives. This money will help to improve the lives of hundreds of thousands of children living in the UK and in some of the poorest countries across the world.
We want to help create lasting change by giving children and their families the chance to start supporting themselves. We want to make sure that children have a chance to enjoy their childhood, whether that's by giving them a break from caring for sick family members, supporting their education or helping children living on city streets to break free from poverty.
