Action for Children Northern Ireland

Action for Children Northern Ireland provides vital services to children, young people and their families throughout NI.

Who We Are Action for Children is made up of approximately 6000 staff and 2000 volunteers in 650 projects across the four nations (NI, England, Scotland, Wales) . Together, we support and speak out for the UK’s most vulnerable and neglected children and young people, for as long as it takes to transform their lives.


Our purpose is always to be there for the most vulnerable children and young people, helping them break through injustice, deprivation and inequality, so they can achieve their full potential. 

Our current strategic objectives:

  • We will make a positive difference in the lives of children and young people and ensure all our decisions and actions are governed by this imperative.
  • We will maximise our opportunities to increase support to the most vulnerable children and young people.
  • We will continually improve Action for Children's efficiency, effectiveness and long term security.
