Connect your child with Nature 🌳

Every month, your child will get their very own box bursting with everything they need to explore the nature around them in new and fun ways. From Spring to Autumn, they’ll get six boxes in total, and you don’t even have to have a garden or access to a big outdoor space.

Boost their mental wellbeing

Our boxes fuel curiosity, creativity and independence away from digital screens. They are filled with exciting activities that connect children to nature and the world around them. All through mindfulness and mental wellbeing techniques, that are fun too!

Support vulnerable children

Not only will you be supporting your child’s wellbeing – you could be helping us support the UK’s most vulnerable children. From helping them work through mental health challenges, to giving them a hot meal and a warm home - you could make a difference to children who need us.

What's in the boxes

From nature crafts and stargazing to nature walks and recipes, every month is different, giving your child hours of fun to break out and explore on their own, or for you to share as a family.

Take a look at what’s in your first box, which includes making their own planisphere to explore the night sky (compass included!) and a colourful nature mobile to brighten up their room.

Thank you for making our days wilder, brighter, and full of wonder. Getting a personalised pack in the post makes them feel really special. 💖

I love the stickers, I’ve stuck them on my bike helmet and my school folder. They remind me that I’m part of the Nature Rangers team!

Action for Children create safe and happy childhoods for vulnerable children across the UK. Mental health and wellbeing is a core part of how we do that. Our work gives children and young people the tools they need to grow a deep understanding of their own minds and how to look after them. And as a provider of childcare with a Forest School ethos, we know how hands-on outdoor learning can benefit those growing minds too.

There are 6 boxes in total, which should cover the Spring to Autumn period. You’ll receive your first box around two weeks after signing up and then one box per month, around the third week of every month.

Yes, your monthly donation will then continue, but you can cancel it at any time.

After month six, your monthly donation will be treated as a donation to Action for Children. We hope you’ll be able to keep supporting our work and making a difference for the children who need us the most.

And if you opt in to receiving emails, you'll be able to keep learning how your monthly gift supports our work to help vulnerable children in the UK.

More about our work

We protect and support children and young people. We do this by providing practical and emotional care and support. We make sure their voices are heard. And we campaign to bring lasting improvements to their lives.

Today, we run 426 services in local communities across the UK, in schools, and online.

In our nurseries and children's centres, staff make sure children get the best start in life. Our foster and modern residential services find children and young people safe and loving homes.

We step in to protect children from neglect and abuse and help those who care for others or are at risk of homelessness. Innovative projects like The Blues Programme give young people the help they need to look after their mental health.

We're also here for parents, through projects like Parent Talk, our online support service.

Your donations help us to support vulnerable children, young people and their families in the UK.

85p of every £1* we spend goes directly towards helping children, young people and their families. We make sure that every penny you donate goes where it will have the greatest impact on children’s lives. Donations from this campaign will be unrestricted and used by Action for Children for its general charitable purposes. That means they’re not spent on one project or one specific area of the UK, but where the need is greatest.

*Figure based on audited 2022/23 charity accounts that exclude subsidiary companies like commercial nurseries.

Donating a small amount every month by direct debit helps us give vulnerable children the stability they need. Our regular supporters help us carry out long-term work and keep vital projects running.
