Our Vision

Action for Children is a national charity that supports and speaks out on behalf of the most vulnerable and neglected children and young people in the heart of communities throughout the UK.  With more than 650 services we are where you live and work. We help transform the lives of thousands of children and young people each year and we’ve been doing so for over 140 years.

The children and young people we support face the most difficult problems in life. Some don’t have the basics, from the love and care of family to regular routines such as mealtimes or the guidance that all children need to grow to be healthy adults. Others have to overcome physical or emotional challenges that hold them back. We help these children to fulfill their potential by providing services to support their individual needs. We succeed in helping children and young people to overcome difficulties at an early stage to tackle problems before it’s too late.

By supporting Action for Children you inspire hope in the thousands of vulnerable children and young people we help.

Through our work and through speaking out, we seek to break the cycle of deprivation. We challenge injustice and empower children to overcome the obstacles in their lives that hold them back. We tailor our work to local circumstances, in partnership with children and young people, families, communities and local organisations.

We work with children and young people:

  • whose families need support
  • who cannot live with their birth families
  • who are disabled
  • who experience severe difficulties in their lives.

Our values

  • Ambitious
  • Passionate
  • Collaborative
  • Inclusive

Our Vision

Location: Sandwell, West Midlands

In Sandwell (Oldbury, Smethwick, Wednesbury and West Bromwich) we provide various activities and support to children and their families. We run one-to-one and group sessions and provide support with employment, parenting, debt support, school readiness  and many health initiatives. Sessions are run in our centres and at community venues in the area. We support children and their families to explore learning opportunities and raise their aspirations through fun and exciting activities. We also run specific targeted groups such as our Fathers group in order to support the harder to reach members of our community. We also offer a family support service offering support, advice and guidance to families within their own homes or in our centres.
