Our Vision

A country where children are free from disadvantage.

Our Mission

We fight for change, supporting disadvantaged children to have better lives.

Our Organisation

It is a painful fact that many children and young people in Britain today are still suffering extreme hardship, abuse and neglect. Too often their problems are ignored and their voices unheard. Now it is time to listen and to act.

The Children’s Society is a national charity running local projects that fight child poverty and neglect, and help all children have a better chance in life.We fight child poverty and neglect, and help all children have a better chance in life.We are a national charity that runs local projects, helping children and young people when they are at their most vulnerable, and have nowhere left to turn.

We listen.We are a national charity that runs local projects, helping children and young people when they are at their most vulnerable, and have nowhere left to turn. We listen.

We also campaign for changes to laws affecting children and young people, to stop the mistakes of the past being repeated in the future.

Our supporters around the country fund our services and join our campaigns to show children and young people they are on their side.

Every year we produce the Good Childhood Report which demonstrates how children in the UK feel about their lives. The report compares 16 countries and examines the latest trends in well-being over time, explanations for gender patterns in well-being, and insights into how multiple experiences of disadvantage are linked to children’s well-being.

The latest report shows that young people’s happiness is at its lowest since 2010.

‘I was lucky to find The Children’s Society at the time I did. I hate to think of it but I’d be dead. I was just on the brink of becoming someone who no one could have saved.’ – Sophie, 16, who ran away from home and started getting involved in crime.
