For safe and happy childhoods

We protect and support children and young people, providing practical and emotional care and support, ensuring their voices are heard, and campaigning to bring lasting improvements to their lives. Last year, we helped more than 387,000 children and families across the UK. 


Vulnerable children need your help

This winter thousands of children won’t have a safe place to sleep. You can change this.



Support for child victims of domestic abuse is patchy, piecemeal and precarious.

Our research shows that not all children are able to access specialist support services. Instead, they face a postcode lottery which leaves many child victims without the help they need.
