Gypsy, Roma and Traveller children

We support children from Gypsy, Roma and Traveller families, as well as refugee and new migrant families.

Young carers

We support the more than 166,000 young carers across the country.

Our finances

We work hard to ensure the money we receive is used efficiently and effectively to support our programmes of work and to improve children's lives.

Young refugees

War, persecution and torture force many children to flee to this country by themselves.

Disabled children

Exclusion, ignorance and disrespect mean that many disabled children are allowed little control over their own lives.

Children at risk on the streets

We support children when they run away from home or care, often finding themselves vulnerable to sexual exploitation.

Our partnership with the Church

Our charity was founded in 1881 by a Sunday school teacher, and our partnership with the Church has been of central importance ever since.

In church

Teenagers speaking to woman outside a churchJesus said that whoever welcomed a child in his name welcomed him and so we are committed to making a better childhood for every child.

We want your church to be involved too.

Our vision and mission

We fight for change, supporting disadvantaged children to have better lives. We are building a country where children are free from disadvantage.
