Opening Hours

Our normal office hours are 09:00 to 17:00 but some of our services are provided 24-hour/7-day.  Some of our group-work and activities are our of normal office hours to suit families. 

We are a national charity that supports and speaks out on behalf of the most vulnerable and neglected children and young people in Northern Ireland. With over 20 services we are based in the heart of local communities. We help thousands of the most vulnerable and neglected children and young people to transform their lives each year and we’ve been doing so for nearly 20-years, helping more than 11,400 children alone in the last year.

We’re here for children, young people and families in Northern Ireland.


Our vision is that every child and young person in the country has a safe and happy childhood and the foundations they need to thrive.


We make sure children get the best start in life. We step in to keep them safe, and support young people who are having a difficult time. We also support families who need a bit of extra help.

We do this because life for some of the children we meet is hard. Some don’t have the basics, like the love and care of a family or a safe place to call home. Others are struggling with their mental health, face physical challenges or don’t have the support they need to become healthy, happy adults. These problems can have a devastating impact on their lives.

We give children and young people the help they need, when they need it. We’re here for them from before they’re born until they’re adults, in local communities, in schools and online. We do this right across Northern Ireland.

Our Services include Fostering, Family Support, Family Early Intervention, Sure Starts, Supported Accommodation, Supported Lodgings, Choices Family Support, Family Support Hubs, Floating Support, Young Carers and the Blues Programme.

Action for Children, Northern Ireland

Boycott your Bed is a replacement for this year’s Byte Night as due to Coronavirus we are unable to hold our yearly sleep out in Belfast. As you know Action for Children’s voluntary income, like many charities, has been hit hard by the pandemic and while we have come up with new products to try and plug that gap we need your help to spread the word and get Northern Ireland signed up! What’s so exciting about this product is that anyone can sign up - it’s one for all the family!
