For hundreds of thousands of children in the UK, childhood hurts.  

Vulnerable children are being ignored, left without support to face abuse and neglect, domestic violence, deprivation and poor mental health. 

Every 15 minutes a child is moved in to care for their own safety. 

Things are getting worse, not better. 

These children have no choice over their circumstances. But we can choose to help them. That’s why we’re launching our Choose Childhood campaign, to urge the government to act now, to put children first and protect them from harm.

To inspire the public to support our work and help children in crisis. Children like Grace and Amy.

Why choose Action for Children?

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.
