Action For Children Donation
From before they are born until they are into their twenties, we help disadvantaged children across the UK.
We help them through fostering or adoption – and by intervening early to stop neglect and abuse. We make life better for children with disabilities. We influence policy and advocate for change. Our 7,000 staff and volunteers operate over 522 services, improving the lives of 301,000 children, teenagers, parents and carers every year. We succeed by doing what’s right, doing what’s needed, and doing what works for children.
We always demonstrate what we do, and show how it works.
From our origins running children's homes, our work has spanned three centuries, developing services for children that are proven to work. We work in partnership with other charities, local authorities and health services, and are supported by a team of experts and specialists. Evidence drives everything we do.
We influence policy and advocate for change.
Speaking out fearlessly to make sure all children have the best start in life. To do this we are pressing for change on three key priorities:
- Support for children and families
- A fair deal for young people
- Tackling child abuse and neglect
We support over 301,000 children and young people throughout the UK
We step in early to stop abuse and neglect, find loving foster and adoptive homes, support young carers, and help young people out of trouble and into education and employment.
Our aim is to be there for every vulnerable child in the UK who needs us, but we cannot do this without your help.
92p of every £1 we spend goes directly towards helping children and families, and – with rising levels of poverty, abuse, and neglect – it’s vital that this is the case.
