Thank you for boycotting your bed

We'd like to say a massive thank you to everyone who took part in Boycott your Bed on 9 July.


You've helped us raise over £180,000. You are amazing!


We'd also like to thank the churches that have held an Action for Children Sunday service or are planning to hold one. We appreciate your thoughtful prayers and donations.


God bless you!

Craftivism to urge MPs to make children a priority

Are you passionate about social justice and would like to do something to ensure children can fulfil their potential?


Can you make a craft to make a point?


If so, we'd love to get you involved in our September craftivism campaign.


You would be helping us to urge your MPs to commit to making children a personal priority by sending them a handcrafted star.

We believe there’s a star in every child.


When a child has the safe and happy childhood they deserve, their star shines brightly. But too many children in the UK right now don’t have the chance to shine.

Their childhoods are overshadowed by poverty, abuse, neglect and poor mental health. And the pandemic has only made things worse..

Our elected politicians can change this.

Sign up and we'll send you information on how you can make a difference.

May mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you
