Campaign for change

girl looking straight ahead

We believe that all children deserve a good childhood. That’s why we campaign for the most vulnerable children and young people who face poverty and neglect, fighting injustice and protecting them from harm.

Around 3.5 million children in the UK – one in four – live in poverty. More than half of these young people are in working families. Neglect and a failure to meet children’s fundamental needs are blighting too many lives. 

By joining our campaigns, you help us build momentum and demand the change that children need. The more people who support us, the louder our voice will be – and the more impact we will have.

Join us to receive more information about how to get involved in our campaigns and help us fight for a better childhood for every child.
