Children should be happy and carefree | The Children's Society

Children should be happy and carefree – not living in fear of crime. Agree? Add your name.

Today's young people are telling us they worry about crime and their safety. For some, even school doesn't feel safe.

But these fears are rarely heard – instead, many young people tell us they feel side-lined and ignored.

The Children's Society is committed to listening to young people, and working with them to speak up so every child can thrive, not just survive.

Pledge 'I Hear Youth' to tell young people you're listening. Add your name now.

Right now in Britain there are children and young people facing criminal exploitation, who feel scared, unloved and unable to cope.

With a quick donation, you can help us ensure that more children are given the support they need to heal and move on from criminal exploitation and abuse, so that they can look forward to a future free from fear and full of hope.
