Young people 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.

Father with child


We believe fathers have a vital role to play in their children's lives.

We know from our practice, from our research, from our partners and from leading experts in the field that fathers matter greatly to our children and young people. Find out about our Fatherhood Commission and our report into the issue of fatherhood.

Mike's story

‘I first heard about The Children’s Society through my church – we always had a Christingle service there. Then, when I retired, we moved to Yorkshire to be closer to my wife’s family. I found I had a lot more free time on my hands, so when the vicar of our new church mentioned that he was looking for a Parish Coordinator I thought I’d give it a go.

What you can do

Individuals and organisations supporting children and families in detention

Do you know a family or separated child who has been detained at an Immigration Removal Centre and would benefit from our services?

How our work supports the OutCry! Campaign

As well as providing much needed support to families and children, our direct work is vital because it feeds into our campaign to bring the immigration detention of children and their families to an end.

We systematically collect evidence from our legal and welfare support work to provide a detailed picture of children’s experiences in detention.

The campaign team uses this evidence to push the government to stop detaining children and families.
