Your legacy can create brighter futures for vulnerable children.

Your lasting legacy will ensure children have the safe and happy childhood they deserve and the foundations they need to thrive.


Choose childhoods free from crisis with a gift in your will

For hundreds of thousands of children in the UK, childhood hurts. Vulnerable children are being ignored, left without support to face abuse and neglect, domestic abuse, deprivation and poor mental health.

Every 15 minutes a child is moved in to care for their own safety.

Things are getting worse, not better. These children have no choice over their circumstances. But we can choose to help them.

Your special gift would ensure future vulnerable children are protected.


How to leave a gift in your will

It's easy to leave a gift in your will, as well as to update an existing will. And any size gift can make a difference. You don't have to let us know your plans, and you can change your mind at any time.

A will is vital at all stages of your life. There are also personal benefits to leaving a charitable gift in your will.

"Growing up, I sadly witnessed horrendous domestic abuse which has impacted me my whole life. That’s why I decided to leave a legacy to Action for Children - because I don’t want other children to experience what I did. I want children to be safe and loved."
