Junior and teen CUBs come in male and female; the toddler CUBs are gender neutral.

We fundraise for the backpacks and then anyone can ‘adopt a CUB’ which involves taking a backpack and filling it using a content list which has been approved by Children Services; although the content is standard and items must be new to preserve the dignity of the recipient, our adopters have the autonomy to choose brands and retailers.

The average cost of a bag and all contents is £30.

Completed CUBs are delivered to Children Services and are then placed with children as they transition into care.
