Every young person deserves a good childhood

That's why we fight for the hope and happiness of young people when it's threatened by abuse, exploitation and neglect. We see the hope and courage in young people every day, and it inspires us to support them through their most serious life challenges.

Now we're stepping up the fight for hope at a time when it's under threat like never before. The pandemic has plunged families into poverty, left children isolated and scared about the future. Help us fight back for their hopes, their ambitions, their whole generation.

In their own words

When young people want to tell their story, we listen. We see something in every one of them. These young people still believe in a better tomorrow. They know they can get away from those who hurt them, have a happy home life, feel better over time.

Often their stories aren't easy to tell, but they tell them. Because they know sharing their story will help them and others like them.

Our impact

Last year we worked with more than 11,500 young people through direct practice. These young people have a huge impact on us - they shine a light on parts of society that are broken for them, and in turn we help them regain their hope, even when it's hanging by a thread.
