The Children's Society

The Children's Society

The projects and ministries of those who work with children through our churches might often overlap with work and projects being supported or led by The Children's Society charity.

Its vision is to make this a country where children are free from disadvantage. It's mission is to fight for change, supporting disadvantaged children to have better lives. This short film explains some of its aims and work: -

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. The Children's Society is here to listen and to act.

"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.

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

Supporters around the country fund its services and join campaigns to show children and young people they have people who are listening and are on their side.

The Children's Society asks churches to support its work by;

  • Raising or giving money: Your generous support means we can keep changing children's lives across England.
  • Campaigning: Join the thousands of people already campaigning with us for real change in our society.
  • Praying: Sign up for our prayer email or order free church resources to support your worship.
  • Volunteering: If you have time you would like to share with us we have lots of ways you can volunteer.
