An award winning writer and actor equally at home on film, TV or stage, Jessica (star of W1A, Up The Women, Twenty twelve, Spaced and The Royle Family) was appointed as an Ambassador in 2009. Jessica launched our 2010 child neglect appeal in London, even taking part in a skydiving fundraiser for us! She has also supported corporate partnerships, hosted events and has supported us with TV appearances including The One Show, Celebrity Mastermind, The Million Pound Drop and The Wright Stuff.

"Action for Children exists because not everyone has a functioning happy family - many have no-one at all. They are the buffer between society and front-line services already strained to breaking point. Their existence gives me hope that our society will not collapse in these uncertain times and I am proud to be a part of what they do."
