The Yorkshire half marathon combines a great city centre start/finish with some of the Peak District's most spectacular views.

Along the way, participants will be able to run on country roads, famous Norfolk Arms, and witness the superb views of the city of Sheffield and the Peak District.

If you enjoy running and like the sound of the Yorkshire half marathon, email vicky.thaxter@actionforchildren.org.uk.

Want to tell us about your lives & let us know if your rights are being met?

Take a few minutes to fill in our CRAE (Children Right’s Alliance in England) survey and tell us about your lives, experiences and views. The findings from the survey will be sent to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child in July 2015 as part of a children and young people's report.

To complete the survey visit - http://buff.ly/1QJjYse
See it, Say it, Change it! – tell us your side of the story! The aim of this survey is to get as many children and young people as possible to tell us about their lives. This will help us find out how well children’s rights are being met in England.

In our recent #PayingthePrice report, 45% of children and young people in the UK told us they had not been given or didn’t know if they’d been given financial education.

We're running a new survey to find out how young people aged 12-25 are managing their money. Complete the survey today for May 1st to enter a prize draw to win a £15 Love2Shop High Street voucher

Aged between 12 to 25?

We are running a short survey to find out what you know about managing your money; who you talk to about it; and what advice and support would help you in the future. The survey will only take 5-10 minutes - http://buff.ly/1FedfCI

#ThankYou to the Wyken Croft Primary School, who held not ones but TWO #GiantWiggle events last Friday.

A total of 180 children took part in a coffee morning, cake and fruit pot sales and a raffle for a fantastic hungry caterpillar cake.

Action for Children
Introduction
Action for Children is a national charity that supports and speaks out on behalf of the most vulnerable and neglected children and young people in the heart of communities throughout the UK.

We work directly with more than 250,000 children, young people, parents and carers across 600 services each year. We help transform the lives of thousands of children and young people each year and we’ve been doing so for over 140 years.

The children and young people we support face the most difficult problems in life. Some don’t have the basics, from the love and care of family to regular routines such as mealtimes or the guidance that all children need to grow to be healthy adults. Others have to overcome physical or emotional challenges that hold them back. We help these children to fulfil their potential by providing services to support their individual needs. We succeed in helping children and young people to overcome difficulties at an early stage to tackle problems before it’s too late.
