Action for Children
Action for Children is the Methodist Children's Charity. They provide care and protection for children and their families throughout the country in projects and are the pioneers in some of the innovative work with children and their families, which is often then taken on by local Social Care Services.
Action for Children provide Support for families, for Children with Disabilities. The help young people get into education, training and employment. They also support Children in care. Action for Children run Fostering and Adoption services, placing children with appropriate families. They campaign for changes in policy and make sure vulnerable children and young people are a priority for policy makers.
Our circuit has had a Support group for many years. We help to raise awareness of the work of Action for Children and help to raise much needed money to support the services they provide. We are always looking for members to join us. Once a year, usually in June, we organise a sponsored walk which is usually around 5 miles and everyone is welcome to join in with us. It is a time for fellowship as well as raising money for Action for Children.
