Action for Children provides vital support to the most disadvantaged children, young people and their families across the UK. They have been providing essential services in the heart of local communities for almost 150 years. Last year, their 600 projects directly supported more than 390,000 children, young people and their families.

We helped to raise £10,980 for Action For Children in 2016 - So a BIG thankyou to all of you that contributed!

The money raised through our partnership will be used towards vital services, supporting the most disadvantaged children, young people and their families across the UK.

Below are some examples of how Action for Children could utilise the money we help to raise:

  • £5 could fund a disabled child’s place in an after-school activity session. These stimulating activities support a disabled child’s development and provides them with an opportunity to relax and play in a safe environment.
  • £20 could help pay for a young carer to have a series of support sessions with a trained professional, helping them work through challenging and emotional barriers that they might be facing.
  • £50 could pay for a trained advisor to help parents struggling in poverty to budget effectively so that their children can have healthy food and warm clothes.
  • £100 could help us support a mother facing severe postnatal depression so
