We’re the leading children’s charity in the UK, specialising in child protection and dedicated to protecting children today to prevent abuse tomorrow. We’re the only UK children’s charity with statutory powers, which means we can take action to safeguard children at risk of abuse.

Act on it now


We are Act on it Now. We’ve been around since 2015 when Cheshire charity, My CWA, noticed there was a lack of support out there to help teenagers & young people to form healthy relationships. 

Since then, we’ve helped thousands of young people to improve their relationships.

Change Grow Live


Change Grow Live has grown from a tiny volunteer-led Sussex-based organisation, to a nationwide charity that helps tens of thousands of people each day.
