Doing What Works

Home » News » Doing What Works

During last weekend's 10.30am Action for Children Sunday service, we heard from the charity's Madeleine Clarke. Responsible for overseeing fund-raising of around £1million in Southern England, Madeleine gave an excellent insight into the wide-ranging and effective work the charity does. Last year in England alone it helped 356,000 children, young people and families and is a major provider of children's services to Bucks County Council.
The charity says, "We do what's right, do what's needed and do what works for children. In a world where one thing often leads to something worse, we prove how it can lead to something much better." Action for Children acts early to stop children being neglected or abused; supports parents and keeps families together; finds loving fostering and adoptive homes and makes life better for children with disabilities. They are especially good at measuring the impact of what they do so they can show that, "every single thing we do makes a difference". So we know that the £400 raised by a retiring collection and plant and home produce stall last Sunday, will be very well spent. To donate or find out more about Action for Children, click here.
