Action for Children

Action for Children is a National charity that supports families.


We are a nationwide service that provides online parenting support to families. We can provide support on a wide range of parenting issues for children of all ages. If it is something we cannot give advice on we will sign post.  

We can cover areas such as:

  • sleep problems

  • child development

  • emotional wellbeing

  • potty training

  • boundaries and behaviour

  • transitions

  • parental conflict

  • parental wellbeing to name a few

Free and confidential live chat with parenting team available via their webpage.

“Our vision is that every child and young person in the UK has a safe and happy childhood, and the foundations they need to thrive. We do this by working closely with children and their families, from before they’re born until their twenties. 

Our work is split into three main areas:

Best start in life

Good mental health 

A safe and loving home
