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.

Hi, thanks for visiting my page.

To raise funds for Action for Children, I am going to Fast for 48 hours -no food or drink (apart from water) from 6pm on Friday 5th May until 6pm on Sunday 7th May !

Those who know anything about me will know that I like my food - so this is a very big challenge. 

If you would like to sponsor me, that would be wonderful, and I, and Action for Children, would be very grateful for your support.

I have been fundraising for Action for Children for over 30 years and know how committed they are to helping disadvantaged children.

Since Action for Children (formerly National Children's Home) was founded by Reverend Thomas Bowman Stephenson in 1869 they have remained passionately committed to helping disadvantaged children.
