Action for Children Coffee Morning
The Methodist Church is holding a special Coffee Morning on Saturday July 2 from 10.00 to 12.00 in the Methodist Church Hall. They are raising funds with coffee, cake, books & stalls, for the Methodist Church children’s’ charity, Action for Children, which runs a wide range of activities and projects to support families and children in the UK.
Action for Children
Read the following from their website to understand how Action for Children makes a difference:
We’re here because every child should be safe. Because every child should have opportunities. Because every child should have a childhood.
Across the UK, hundreds of thousands of children aren’t getting the care or opportunities they need. Families are struggling, and children are neglected, ill treated and abused. Young people face isolation and often violence as they grow up. This is not acceptable.
We take action to improve the lives of these vulnerable children. We intervene early to help to fix problems before children are overwhelmed and we intervene when there are more serious concerns to make children safer and help them to thrive.
We’ve been helping children and young people for 145 years. From our earliest days, we’ve moved with the times to adapt, to make children safer.
We evolve. Today we support parents and parents-to-be, babies and pre-school children. We help young carers, disabled children and their families. We support young people through the most difficult times – in their families, in care and as they become independent adults.
