About Action For Children (NCH) National

All families need help at critical moments. We support children and families with the most difficult problems and are the largest provider of family support services in the UK. Families under stress are often trapped in a difficult situation - on their own with little money and no confidence. This can put children at risk. Our long-term approach - supporting and challenging families - gives families opportunities to turn things around together. We help: - children who are neglected or abused - children whose parents are separating - children having difficulties at school - children returning to live at home - young people with caring responsibilites - families whose tenancy is at risk because of anti-social behaviour - families at risk of breakdown. Our children's and family centres give parenting advice, a safe space for families to play and the chance to learn new skills, subjects and information. The centres also help practically, with things like debt and housing difficulties, and offer self-help or family therapy for problems such as sexual abuse, domestic violence and anti-social behaviour.
