There are children across the UK who face christmas without food, warmth and love. Action for children protect and support children from before they are born until they are into their twenties. The charity was founded in 1869 and since then has worked tirelessly to bring lasting improvement to the lives of children ensuring they are not neglected. Whilst the charity does a great job, the number of children living under poverty in the UK is currently 4.1 million so they need your generosity to continue making an impact.
