We are a children’s charity committed to helping disadvantaged children, young people, and their families across the UK.

Run a marathon or cycle 100 miles in a month, live-stream on Twitch, take a million steps or set your own Milestones and build your own #ConnectedFundraising challenge, it’s up to you!  Sign up to GivePenny and launch your page today!

Action for Children runs over 500 early intervention and targeted services across the UK, supporting over 300,000 children, young people and families each year. From our origins running children's homes, our work has spanned three centuries, developing services for children that are proven to work. We work in partnership with other charities, local authorities and health services, and are supported by a team of experts and specialists. 

We focus on giving children and young people the best start in life, making sure they have a safe and loving home, and enabling them to thrive and have good mental health. More than ever, our work depends on public support. We earn it by showing how every single thing we do makes a difference. 

We will succeed by doing what's right, doing what's needed, and doing what works for children.
