In London since 1881

We have supported vulnerable children and young people in London since our charity was founded in 1881.

Our work began with children’s homes back in the 19th century, helping impoverished and homeless children.

Over recent years, our focus has moved away from children’s homes and to providing dedicated services for children and young people facing exceptional difficulties, such as child sexual exploitation and trafficking.

Today, our range of services in the capital helps young people facing issues such as sexual exploitation, trafficking, destitution and going missing from home. We also advocate for some of the most vulnerable young people living in the city, such as refugees and migrants and young people who are disabled.

Check out our interactive timeline of our work in London.
