The Children's Society

It’s time to support children in the UK who feel scared, unloved and unable to cope.

Right now, in Britain today, there are children and young people who feel scared, unloved and unable to cope. They feel alone in the world, like they just don’t matter. This is a lonely place for them, where it is easy to feel overwhelmed.

These are the children and young people we work with, step-by-step, for as long as it takes, making small changes that make a big difference.

We listen. We support. We act.

Last year we worked directly with more than 13,000 vulnerable children and young people, and helped change laws to improve life for millions more.

There are no simple answers to tackling the problems young people today are facing. Often it is complex and we can’t do it alone. This is why we work with politicians, policy makers and other organisations to come together, to help tackle them.
 
Only together can we make a difference, not just to individual lives, but to the lives of millions of children both now and in the future.
 
Because no child should feel alone.
