Policy and lobbying
Many of the decisions taken that affect children's lives are made in parliament and in their local area.
Learn how we work with children at risk who run away from home or care because of conflict, abuse or neglect.
We aim to ensure that laws and policies help keep young refugees and migrants safe and protect their rights as children, regardless of their immigration status or nationality.
We tell members of parliament (MPs) and peers what children and young people want and what they think about their lives.
We respond to government proposals, lobby on legislation, inform parliamentarians about our key concerns, and provide briefings suggesting solutions.
Our volunteers are vital to helping tackle the causes of poverty and neglect that harm children's lives
