Child Action Northwest is a charity dedicated to supporting children, young people, vulnerable adults and families who need help

And we’ve been doing this for 130 years.

Our history stretches all the way back to the founding of Blackburn Orphanage in 1886. A lot has changed since then, but many of the challenges facing those in need are similar today.

We have the experience and the passion to focus on the support needed by children, young people, families and communities across the North West and beyond..

Everyone has the right to achieve their full potential, whatever their background or circumstances. We work with over 10,000 children, young people and families across the North West and beyond every year. The work we do helps to strengthen individuals, families and communities so that children and young people can lead healthy and meaningful lives, with the opportunity to succeed in school, grow up to enjoy healthy relationships, to have access to training and employment opportunities and to be successful.
