Charity of the Season - The Children’s Society

Right now in Britain there are children and young people who feel scared, unloved and unable to cope. The Children’s Society works with these young people, step by step, for as long as it takes. We listen. We support. We act. Only together can we make a difference to the lives of children now and in the future.

Because no child should feel alone.
