Action for Children

Action for Children's vision is of a world where all children and young people have a sense of belonging and are loved and valued. A world where they can break through injustice and deprivation and fulfil their potential. Our operational mission is to support and speak out for vulnerable children and their families. We challenge injustice and empower children to overcome the barriers that hold them back. We believe in early intervention, supporting families as soon as problems come up.

1.1 million raised and counting!

Byte Night has now raised over £1.1 million and the money is still coming through - thank you enormously to all those who slept out or donated to the cause.

This money was raised by 1300 sleepers across eight locations in the UK. Belfast, East Anglia, London, Midlands, North West, Scotland, South West and Thames Valley all have an annual Byte Night event in which professionals from the technology and business sector come together to sleep under the stars.

Byte Night fundraising helps to protect young people that do not have a roof over their head. Over 80,000 young people are homeless every year and this needs to stop. We run vital sevices in the UK, such as West Suffolk shared housing and New Horizons in Edinburgh, these services not only provide a roof over their heads but it also gives young people support and life skills to help them get back on track.

Your generosity this year has been amazing however we must continue to support these young people, who through no fault of their own, have been left with nowhere to go and no one to turn to. Please continue to support our work by signing up to Byte Night 2015 (bytenight.org.uk) or donating.

A massive thank you from the Byte Night team.

Inspired by RIdeLondon 2014?

Are you inspired after this year’s RIdeLondon 100?


Our riders made a tremendous effort, battling though the rain to reach the finish line in front of Buckingham Palace. Our 35 riders have helped us to raise over £20,000 through the event so far and the Dell riders helped raised £5,000 of this amazing amount.


A big well done and congratulations to everyone who took part from Dell and a big thank you to everyone who made a donation.
