Action for Children Sunday
Action for Children Sunday is on 14th July and the theme is 'Justice for vulnerable families'. We would be delighted if you can hold a special service to remember our work on that date or another day. Resources for all-ages, children and young people services can be found on our website here:

NEW Nationwide Partnership
At Action for Children, we're launching a multi-million-pound partnership with Nationwide Building Society, providing support for tens of thousands of vulnerable children, young people and families living in financial hardship. The programme will provide crucial support across the UK in two services.

The Family Fundwill give families immediate, flexible support with essentials like food, bills, clothing and equipment for their homes.

And Family Clubswill provide welcoming, safe spaces in local communities where families can come to eat, get warm, feel comfortable and get support with whatever they're facing. Poverty can change a child's path. It can make dreams harder to reach, potential harder to fulfil. And it's relentless. But it isn't inevitable.

Helping make the UK the best place to grow up

With the general election happening next week, now is the time to ask our next government to be a champion for children.

How you can help:

Fundraise in your church

Holding a fundraising event in your church can help us improve the lives of vulnerable children around the UK. The event can be big or small – every bit of help makes a difference.
