Our Swap’n’Shop initiative helps to provide young people with qualifications to help them improve their employment prospects, but it also provides vital support to young people and families when they need it the most.

Samantha is a single mum of 2 children aged 2 and 4. She moved to the country to escape domestic abuse from her partner who was an alcoholic. She was finding it hard to adjust to life in a rural and isolated area and her children were becoming increasingly anxious and shy. Samantha was also diagnosed with depression, which made it even harder to cope when they were made homeless.

That’s when Action for Children stepped in.
