Make the birthday pledge

Your birthday can turn lives around.

Do something amazing with your birthday – you can donate or you can ask friends and family for donations instead of gifts and help us be there for every vulnerable child in the UK who needs us. 

Your birthday could:

  • Help set up an emergency overnight accommodation project for young people sleeping rough
  • Help train foster carers to look after children who can’t stay with their own families because it isn’t safe
  • Help us support mothers facing severe post-natal depression

Why donate your birthday to Action for Children?

Right now we are supporting children who can’t live with their birth families, helping families recover from the trauma of abuse, preventing children from the dangers of homelessness and offering a lifeline to families in poverty. And because we make your birthday go further - for every £1 we spend, 92p goes directly towards helping children and families.
