Who we are

Save the Children exists to help every child reach their full potential. In more than 100 countries including the UK, we make sure children stay safe, healthy and keep learning. We find new ways to reach children who need us most, no matter where they’re growing up.

For a century, we’ve stood up for children’s rights and made sure their voices are heard. Together with children, supporters and partners, we’re determined to help every child become who they want to be.

Are you ready to be your personal best and help children reach their potential? Then sign up to run for us today.
