Our Vision

From before they are born until they are into their twenties, we help disadvantaged children across the UK. We simply couldn’t deliver the work we do without our 2000 volunteers giving up their time to support us. Our opportunities are so diverse; from fundraising, to mentoring young children, to offering administrative support, we have something for everybody.
 
Action for Children is a national children's charity with volunteer roles throughout the UK. It's supported by a central volunteer team who are based in Liverpool (L11), and of course our mascot Tom the Bear.
