Donate to help stop child abuse

"Daddy hits me. He makes me stand against the wall until I fall down".

Behind closed doors at home David, who was just six years old, was being physically and mentally abused. For a child like David who is stuck in an abusive situation, your act of generosity could help us be there to break the cycle of abuse. It can mean one of our caseworkers like Anne-Marie, can be there when they are needed most. It can mean providing a safe home for a child who has known nothing but violence and neglect.

Will you give £5 a month to help stop the abuse?


Children are affected by abuse and neglect every single day right here in the UK, on your doorstep.

"The first day I sat with David he didn't speak for over an hour. I've honestly never seen a child look so sad before. It wasn't just the bruises on the outside – David never lifted his eyes from the ground, his body was limp and he looked like a little empty shell. When I finally managed to get him to speak, he told me in a tiny, quiet voice “Daddy hits me. He makes me stand against the wall until I fall down."

"We know there are children out there we don’t reach. With no help and support they're going to suffer."

Anne-Marie, Action for Children Caseworker
