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.
