In communities

With the right support, every child should flourish

We want to make a big difference

To children who are growing up in poverty, across all areas of their lives.

Supporting children in our communities

Our Children’s Communities programme gets organisations and agencies working together to make sure there are no gaps for children to fall through. 

We empower local agencies to create a support chain that makes sure help is at hand for our poorest children - whatever stage of their development they need it.

Right now, we're focused on two communities in England, and we're working to take the approach to more areas across the UK.

Empowering local people

We're empowering children and families in Scotland to create stronger communities through our Children's Places Programme. Focusing on key areas of childhood wellbeing, the programme uses tailored engagement sessions to capture children's understanding of their community and their representation. In turn, this allows families and the wider community to shape local services that best support children as they grow.
