Action for Children



Find parenting advice and support in a way that works for you - online or in person. Every parent needs a little support from time to time. From bonding with your baby to potty training, behaviour and mental health - we're here to help you navigate the everyday. Depending on your needs, we offer support in the following ways:

  • Through our online parenting advice hub.
  • At our fostering and adoption blog.
  • With parenting support in your community.


Our parenting hub

Parent Talk is our online advice hub. Browse expert articles on common parenting questions - from potty training to emotional wellbeing. Or use our live chat to connect directly to a qualified parenting coach. It’s all free, and no topic is too big, small, or embarrassing.

Visit the Parent Talk website for more information.


Live Chat

Get more information on our 1-to-1 live chat.

We’re open 12:00-19:30 Monday & Thursday, 09:30-16:30 Tuesday & Wednesday, and 09:30-16:00 Friday. At other times, leave us a message and we’ll get back to you.

Our charity aims to protect and support children and young people, provide practical and emotional care and support, ensure their voices are heard, and campaign to bring lasting improvements to their lives.

Every child should grow up safe and happy. That’s why we provide support to help them thrive - and step in to help when times get tough.

This means protecting the vulnerable from neglect and abuse. It means supporting young people who are homeless and those who care for others. It’s finding safe and loving homes and giving children a voice by campaigning for something better.

It also means being there when the unexpected happens.

Blue Programme

The Blues Programme gives young people the tools to look after their emotional wellbeing

The Blues Programme is an internationally acclaimed wellbeing programme for young people aged 13-19. Over six weeks, it teaches emotional resilience, and reduces low mood and anxious thoughts. Crucially, it gets teenagers talking.

On average, every classroom in Britain has three children with a diagnosable mental health illness. So far, we’ve delivered The Blues Programme in over 150 schools, to more than 5,500 young people.

  • 76% of students say it improved their wellbeing.

  • 80% feel comfortable talking about their mental health.

  • 98% would recommend Blues to one of their friends.

We’re bringing the programme to schools thanks to Royal Mail, which has provided £2 million raised through employee fundraising.
