Action for Children

Action for Children protects and supports children and young people, providing practical and emotional care and support, ensuring their voices are heard, and campaigning to bring lasting improvements to their lives.

We’ve been supporting children since 1869 when Methodist minister Thomas Bowman Stephenson set up the first “Children’s Home"

What makes Action for Children different

We work to change the lives of vulnerable children in the UK. We’ve been doing this for 150 years.

We’ve learnt a lot in this time - gathering experience and expertise that we use every day in more than 475 local services, in schools, and online. We make a real difference by doing what’s proven to work, and by coming up with new solutions. Last year, we reached 387,000 children, young people and families in the UK.
