Action for Children

Our vision is that every child and young person in the UK has a safe and happy childhood, and the foundations they need to thrive. We do this by working closely with children and their families, from before they’re born until their twenties.

Our work is split into three main areas:

Best start in life

We know how important the early years are - and we’re here to help. From parenting advice to education and early intervention, we focus on improving children’s life chances.

Good mental health

Everyone has ups and downs in life. Our mental and emotional well-being experts work with families and schools to make sure children and parents feel able to cope with challenges when they arise.

A safe and loving home

We make sure more children feel part of a family that cares for them. We find homes for those without, protect children who have been abused or neglected, and help ensure young carers don’t miss out on a childhood.

We make a difference by:

  • Supporting parents and families
  • Supporting children and young people  
  • Campaigning for change  
  • Publishing vital research and influencing policy
  • Fostering and adoption
