The Children’s Society has been helping children and young people in this country for over 130 years.

We also campaign and lobby to change the systems that prevent children and young people from thriving. We’re there for children, every step of the way.

Influencing and negotiation
Network and relationship building
Political nous and knowledge (especially of parliament and its procedures)
Understanding of social justice issues around children and young people
Ability to interpret policy and statistics for target audiences

The Children’s Society runs over 100 local services that help thousands of young people who desperately need our support, and we campaign to get laws and policies changed to make children’s lives happier and safer.

Every day we’re changing the lives of children in this country for the better – and with your help, tomorrow we can be there for even more.

The Children’s Society is committed to safeguarding and protecting the children and young people that we work with.
