Edward Rudolf founded The Children's Society in 1881.
Participation means creating and promoting positive opportunities for children of all ages and abilities to get actively involved in all areas of our work.
We ensure that children in care or in the child protection system have a say in important decisions that are made about their lives.
We are leading the way in developing programmes to identify and support children living in families where parents are affected by drugs or alcohol misuse.
We support the more than 166,000 young carers across the country.
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.
War, persecution and torture force many children to flee to this country by themselves.
Exclusion, ignorance and disrespect mean that many disabled children are allowed little control over their own lives.
We support children when they run away from home or care, often finding themselves vulnerable to sexual exploitation.
Our charity was founded in 1881 by a Sunday school teacher, and our partnership with the Church has been of central importance ever since.
