Campaign for change
We believe that all children deserve a good childhood. But right now around 4 million children in the UK – one in four – live in poverty. At the same time, neglect and a failure to meet young people’s fundamental needs are blighting too many lives.
That’s why we campaign for the most vulnerable children and young people who face poverty and neglect, to tackle injustice and protect them from harm.
By joining our campaigns, you help us build momentum and demand the change that children need. The more people who support us, the louder our voice will be – and the more impact we will have.
Sign up today - become a Children’s Society campaigner and help us fight for a better childhood for every child.
We are calling on the Government to strengthen the law so all children and young people experiencing exploitation get the protection they need.
We are asking councils to make care leavers exempt from paying council tax up to the age of 25

Many young people struggle with their finances when living independently for the first time. But this is a particularly difficult period for care leavers as they don’t have family to support them. We are campaigning to make sure care leavers have better financial stability.
