Only a week until our free Evidence Based Programmes conference in Glasgow.

The conference will offer the chance to find out which programmes could work for you, hear how Renfrewshire implemented Functional Family Therapy, learn the tools you need to define a successful strategy that impacts the future of young people and their families and identify opportunities to work together with other statutory and non-statutory providers and professionals. Register now, email ebpconference@actionforchildren.org.uk

Could you take on our #SnowdonUnderTheStars challenge?

Following a hearty supper, you’ll trek the 3,650ft to Snowdon’s Peak, reaching the ‘rooftop of Wales’ at sunrise for a spectacular view of Wales. After the return trek, you will reach your end point on Action for Children Sunday, where a well-earned breakfast awaits.

If you're up to the challenge visit http://bit.ly/snowdonunderstars for more information.

Our #SkillsforSuccess workshop is up and running with Barclays Citizenship. We wonder what the strangest job aspiration will be.

What was the first job you dream of?

It's Action for Children Scotland's 60th birthday this year!

To help us mark this special occasion we are looking for 60 brave people to zipslide across the River Clyde in Glasgow this Sunday. Registration is just £20 per person and we ask individuals to raise £100 in sponsorship.

Get some colleagues at work, friends or your family to join you. You and your team will receive a fundraising pack and plenty of hints, tips and advice from your local fundraiser to help you reach your target http://buff.ly/17AWS5z.

We’re excited to team with Barclays Citizenship to launch a nationwide, employment skills programme to help 30,000 young people #SkillsforSuccess

We're looking to equip young people with the basic skills and knowledge to help them gain employment or training.

Leeds 10K is a great chance to get active, raise money and have fun.

If you're looking to participate in a marathon, this event is perfect for you. The route travels from the city centre out to Headingley before returning back to the centre.

For more information or to book a place email Vicky.thaxter@actionforchildren.org.uk.

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.
