How Action for Children works:


For the past 150 years we have been passionate about being by the side of vulnerable children across the UK. Gifts in wills account for over 20% of our fundraised income and enable our 7000 staff to work tirelessly to break the patterns of disadvantage, neglect and emotional distress for children and their families.

One of our pledgers, Sue*, witnessed horrendous domestic abuse throughout her childhood. She left a gift to Action for Children in her will because she has experienced first-hand the value of safety and security, which is what we strive to provide for every child in the UK for generations to come.

We succeed by doing what’s right, doing what’s needed, and doing what works for the 300,000 children and families we support. In a world where one thing often leads to something worse, we prove how it can lead to something much, much better.
