What we do

We help children who’ve been abused to rebuild their lives, protect children at risk, and find the best ways of preventing child abuse.

We help children rebuild their lives, and we find ways to prevent abuse from ruining any more.

So when a child needs a helping hand, we’ll be there. When parents are finding it tough, we’ll help. When laws need to change, or governments need to do more, we won’t give up until things improve.

Helping children and families

We offer all kinds of support in every community in the UK, from antenatal care for new parents to helping mums and children recover from domestic abuse.
