Action for Children NI – Giving more children a safe and happy childhood.
Action for Children’s vision is that every child and young person in the UK has a safe and happy childhood, and the foundations they need to thrive. They do this by working closely with children and their families, from before they’re born, until they are in their twenties.
“Without Action for Children, I don’t know where I’d be. My children and I would have been homeless. But my support worker helped us in so many ways. I am so grateful.”
Action for Children NI make a difference by:
- Supporting parents and families
- Supporting children and young people
- Campaigning for change
- Publishing vital research and influencing policy
- Fostering and adoption
