We’re changing the lives of children and young people across the UK

In 2018-19 we directly supported more than 294,300 children, young people, parents and carers.

This includes:

  • 84,500 through individual work
  • 181,100 through our children’s centres and family hubs
  • 28,700 through our school-based programmes

Our plan through to 2025 is to build stronger families, safer childhoods and positive futures for young people. Find out more about our priorities in our Corporate Strategy.

Our Corporate Strategy Refresh in 2019 was to ensure we remain a constant force for good in the lives of the children, young people, parents and carers who depend on us.

Across the UK, children continue to face complex challenges, including a growing crisis in children’s mental health, rising numbers going into the care system in England, and an increase in serious youth violence.

How we help

With the dedication and expertise of around 8,000 staff, 20,000 volunteers and our partners, we continue to develop radical solutions to identify vulnerable children, intervene early and support them to work towards a positive future.

But we want to go further – we want to respond to the challenges faced by children today while preparing for the realities of childhood tomorrow.
