Working at Toybox gives a rewarding focus on helping those most in need

Gemma Gibbard

Gemma Gibbard

Digital Content Manager

Working for Toybox has opened my eyes to the lives of street children around the world which has blown my mind. The responsibility and daily struggles which some of these children face because of the circumstances into which they were born seems so unfair. I am proud to work for an organisation that is tackling global change to benefit every single one of us.

Supporter Engagement Manager

I love working for an organisation that is quick to take action and tackles issues of inequality head on. I fundamentally believe that every child deserves a childhood and that no child should be written off because they have no permanent place to live.

Director of Impact and Programmes

There are many reasons I love working for Toybox but one that stands out is that every pound spent is so carefully considered to ensure the maximum possible goes towards positively changing the lives of street children. The second is the commitment across staff, trustees, partners and our supporters in working together to make this transformation a reality.

I feel very blessed to work for such a truly kind and inspiring organisation. Where absolutely everyone is driven by the same passion, to work together to do all we can to get as many children as possible away from living and working on some of the most dangerous streets in the world, and give them real hope for a future of choices and opportunities.

Graeme Everist

Graeme Everist

Director of Finance & Resources

When I joined Toybox, it struck me that the first question asked, about every decision, was 'What is the best choice for the children we work with?'. Because of this attitude, the whole team can hold the leadership to account and make sure we don't just take the easy option.

Graeme Everist — Director of Finance & Resources

We are small but mighty

Naomi Lewis

Naomi Lewis

Director of Marketing & Fundraising

I am proud to work for an organisation that fights against the injustice of children living and working on the world’s most dangerous streets. Though we be small, we are mighty in our courageous decision-making and actions when it comes to tackling the issues that mean children will be sleeping on pavements tonight. I completely believe that we will achieve our vision of a world where street children are a part of history and not of today.

Individual Giving Manager

I love working for a small organisation that doesn’t let our size determine or define our ability and determination to achieve our mission of ending the injustice of children living and working on the streets. I have complete faith that one day we will see a world where no child anywhere is forced to live in this dangerous and precarious way and fighting this fight is what gets me out of bed every morning.
