Our operational mission
Through our work and through speaking out, we seek to break the cycle of deprivation. We challenge injustice and empower children to overcome the obstacles in their lives that hold them back.
We tailor our work to local circumstances, in partnership with children and young people, families, communities and local organisations.
We believe all children and young people have unique potential and that they should have the support and opportunities they need to reach it. Action for Children helps more than 390,000 children, young people, parents and carers through 611 projects across the UK. We also promote social justice by lobbying and campaigning for change.
Today, Action for Children is the leading UK provider of family and community centres, children's services in rural areas, services for disabled children and their families, and services for young people leaving care.
We provide services in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
