Programs

Action for Children is a leading UK children's charity, with more than 140 years' experience of helping children and families get the best possible start in life. We were founded in 1869 when our founders saw homeless children suffering on the streets of London and took action, opening the first ever children's home in the UK and making a better life possible for very vulnerable children. Today, Action for Children is a leading children's charity, running high-quality services in the heart of local communities. We exist to help all children prosper and realise their incredible potential. We tackle difficult problems like neglect, family illness, abuse and homelessness and we focus on areas that make children and families' lives better: health, relationships, achievement and safety. We deliver services across the UK and meet local needs, helping disadvantaged people build a more secure, more successful future. We also campaign to make sure that vulnerable children are a priority for policy makers and have a real voice. Action for Children supports 250,000 children and families and runs 650 local projects: We help babies and children get the best possible start in life, running 230 children's centres where all families can get invaluable advice and support We help young carers, care leavers and vulnerable older children by raising their aspirations and helping them to get into education, training and employment We support families in crisis by providing parenting classes, mediation and intensive support to help them overcome disadvantage and move forward We run respite and outreach services for disabled young people, so that they can live more independently. We also support children who can't live with their birth families by providing safe, loving homes
