Action for children

Safeguarding is at the heart of everything we do. It’s how we protect children, young people and vulnerable adults from harm.

As a major provider of children’s services in the UK, we have a duty to safeguard and promote the welfare of children and young people. We share this responsibility with parents, staff, volunteers, and other agencies.

Worried about a child’s safety right now? Here's what to do:

Keeping children safe is everyone’s responsibility. It can be difficult to know what to do if you think a child is at risk. It’s important to remember that if you’ve spotted things that don’t seem right, others will have too. Speaking up can make sure that child gets help as soon as possible.
