Star in Every Child

Every child deserves a bright future. Together, we have the power to help children overcome abuse and neglect, poverty and poor mental health
Help them shine

We believe there's a star in every child. It’s their energy, their imagination. Their personality. When a child is safe and happy, their star shines brightly.

But poverty, abuse and neglect, and poor mental health are robbing too many children of the bright futures they deserve.

Together, we can change this.

Right now, millions of children in the UK don’t have the chance to shine. Their childhoods are overshadowed by abuse and neglect, poverty and poor mental health.

Together, we can help make sure children get the best start in life and have a loving place to call home. We can provide food and warmth in a crisis. We can be there for parents who are struggling. And we can offer the right mental health support so children thrive.

Help us break down the barriers that stop children shining – before it’s too late.

Without support, abuse and neglect, poverty and poor mental health can have a lifelong impact. Because it’s hard to grow, learn and fulfil your potential when you’re hungry or cold, scared or alone.
