Collaboration is in our DNA

War Child was born out of collaboration with the music industry. We have since built a large network of incredible partners and friends across the music, tech, hospitality and creative industries who have helped us raise millions of pounds for children in conflict. Find out how partnering with us can transform lives.

Where it all began 

Our collaboration with the music industry began in 1995, when the cream of British music came together to record and release the iconic ‘HELP’ album to raise funds for children affected by the Bosnian War. The album was recorded in a single day and raised over £1 million within its first week. Featuring Brian Eno, Paul McCartney, Neneh Cherry, Oasis, Blur, Radiohead and more, it was bound to make history and it is still the ‘charity’ album others are compared to. 

Since then, War Child has had a wealth of experience working with some of the biggest names in music, including Coldplay, Dave, Jessie Ware, Bastille, Ed Sheeran, Paul Weller, Mumford & Sons, Muse, Stefflon Don, Arctic Monkey, Griff, Jack Savoretti and many more.
