Action For Children
Action for Children works in local communities to protect and support the young and vulnerable, as they grow up. We exist to make their lives better: now, tomorrow and every day. We make growing up safer. We believe in taking action early to fix problems before a child is overwhelmed by them. We make things happen quickly and with understanding. We help children at different stages of their lives. We care about each child and every family. We treat everyone as an individual and give people the support they really need. We never give up. We run over 650 services, from children’s centres to intensive family support, from fostering and adoption to respite care for the disabled. We have over 7,000 staff and 2,000 volunteers. In the past year we helped more children and their families across the UK than any other charity. Today, we could easily double that number to meet demand. Let’s all take more action for children.

The Byte Night Miscellany under the stars

Hi there!

Thanks for popping by.

We are the Byte Night Miscellany - a group of freelancers, entrepreneurs, advisers and self-employed people who are joining forces to support Action for Children's Byte Night. We wanted to take part but don't have enough people in our businesses to field a team.

On October 8th, we'll be spending the night sleeping under the stars (or the rain clouds...) in order to raise money and awareness for youth homelessness.

Please sponsor generously!

Vero, Bill, Mark, David, Tim and Alex

Together we represent organisations including BBC, BDO LLP, The Business Leaders Network, Cognitive Match, PepsMedia and Taylor Wessing.

Note: Some of the funds were raised here (included in offline total)
