For safe and happy childhoods

We protect and support 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. Last year, we helped more than 387,000 children and families across the UK.

Change a life today

Since the coronavirus crisis we've already supported over 5000 children and young people; but with UK child poverty predicted to rise to over five million in the next two years, we need your help more than ever.
