We champion the interests of children and aim to provide every child with the best possible start in life.

This includes tackling child poverty, providing support on parenting and childcare, delivering education programmes, improving health and safeguarding children, promoting play and leisure schemes, and ensuring children's voices are heard.

Our work is based on delivering the core aims of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
