Charity Spotlight: Action for Children

Across the UK, hundreds of thousands of children aren’t getting the care or opportunities they need. Families are struggling, and children are neglected, ill-treated and abused. Young people face isolation and often violence as they grow up. This is not acceptable.

From before they are born until they are into their twenties, Action for Children 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 staff and volunteers operate over 600 services, improving the lives of 370,000 children, teenagers, parents and carers every year. We succeed by doing what’s right, doing what’s needed, and doing what works for children.
