We fight for change, helping children with severe and multiple disadvantage to have better lives
For over 135 years, we have been changing vulnerable children’s lives for the better.
Because we always listen to children, we understand the unique challenges that they face in today’s society and our frontline services and campaigning work have a proven positive impact on their lives.
We work directly with vulnerable children and young people, many of whom have nowhere else to turn.
We work with our partners
We work with a range of partners across central and local government, schools, health providers, faith groups and local community groups to bring change for children.
More than 40 local authorities have chosen us to help deliver their services, and we’re eager to work with more authorities and partners to bring the positive change that young people in this country so desperately need.
We want to transform the lives of more children by lobbying Government and local authorities to change policy and practice to protect them, and we challenge the negative attitudes that perpetuate harm and injustice.
By commissioning us you will be enabling us to bring our expertise, evidence-based services and models to provide innovative solutions to the needs of young people in your area.
We’ll bring our wealth of knowledge and experience to work with you to meet the needs of local communities and the most vulnerable young people.
But there is still much work to do:
- over 3.9 million children in the UK are currently living in poverty
- every five minutes a child runs away from home
- there are 16,500 young people who are currently at high risk of child sexual exploitation
- One young person in ten has mental health issues
We want to be there for the millions of children and young people in this country who have nowhere else to turn to for help.
We transform the lives of more than 44,000 children and young people each year and in partnership with children's services' commissioners.
We are collaborating with Xenzone to provide a blended digital and face-to-face solution to transform mental health services for vulnerable children and young people aged up to 25
Our latest commission is a training package for the Department of Health. The training will reach more than 650,000 healthcare professionals, to make sure they know the signs of child sexual abuse and have the confidence to step in and stop it.
