Children in trouble with the law

Bullying, violence, deprivation. Exposed to terrors like these, it's not surprising that some children are driven to crime. At The Children's Society we seek lasting solutions to the reasons behind the statistics, providing preventative support and guidance that leads children away from the cycle of crime and custody. We also help to reconcile victims with offenders and campaign for society to see that young offenders are not hardened criminals and that they retain the right to be treated like children.

Traveller and Gypsy children - T

Children of Traveller, Gypsy and Roma families often face discrimination by the media, bullying at school and rejection from their local communities. Due to widespread prejudices and little understanding of their culture and traditional way of life, few agencies try to reach them. We understand their needs and we lobby for their right to a good childhood.

The Children's Society's Reaction to the Child Benefit Cut

29 October 2010
29 October 2010

Change. The Children's Society accepts the Government's decision to withdraw Child Benefit from higher tax rate earners, and hopes that this will allow the Government to strengthen its protection of the poorest and most vulnerable families. We also call on the Government to consider the reinstatement of a universal Child Benefit when the public finances allow.
