Our campaigns for children
We campaign alongside young people so they can overcome the toughest challenges of modern life and face their futures with hope and confidence.
We're fighting so young people can get mental health advice when they need it. So that families are properly protected through the cost of living crisis, and so that child refugees arriving in the UK alone have a trusted adult looking out for them.
Our current campaigns to help children
We are campaigning for all care leavers to be exempt from council tax – relieving a huge burden as they begin their adult lives.
The cost of living crisis is pushing families to the brink. Our services are here for young people when they need our help. But families must have more support.
Right now, hundreds of thousands of young people need mental health support. Many are left on waiting lists while their mental health gets worse.
And for young refugees arriving in the UK alone, life isn't easy. Many don't have anyone by their side through the complicated and often re-traumatising asylum process.
The change we make
We drive change at a local and national level. We influence national legislation and make sure local councils look after those who have it toughest in their communities.
Sometimes it takes years to create change. But we keep going. With our amazing campaigners and supporters, we have made a real difference to the lives of children and young people.
Become a part of the change we make
Over the years, our campaigns have created a lot of positive change for young people. From making sure low income families get free school meals to introducing compulsory sex and health education in secondary schools. But we can't stop. More needs to be done. Only with your support can we create a society built for all children.
