Children England

Join us to change the world for children

 

Children England is the brave, independent voice of the children’s voluntary sector, working collaboratively to keep children at heart in society and to create a sustainable voluntary sector economy.

If yours is a charity that works for children, you’ll know how important it is that we make children central in services and policies that affect them – and how urgent it is that we support each other to make this happen both locally and nationally.

We work to achieve systemic change for children by collaborating with a huge range of children’s experts on bold policy development and clear, fearless campaigning. We speak up for children and the charities that support them at a time when "The sector needs a strong voice now more than ever to speak up against the erosion and fragmentation of services for children, young people and struggling families."

 

We invite you to join our network, add your voice and shape our work.

The Mighty Poem

A wonderful poem written by one of our lovely children, Jacob, inspired by War Horse by Michael Morpugo

The Mighty Poem

 

My horse Joey

 

Brave and strong

 

Faces battle all night long

 

Bangs, explosions, gas and smoke

 

Damp and muddy on he goes

 

Pulling bodies from the trench

 

Cannot shift eternal stench

 

Endless trauma, no relief

 

No wonder we can get no sleep

 

My horse Joey

 

Brave and Strong

 

16 million men are gone

 

My horse Joey

 

Brave and strong

 

8 million horses 

 

Brave and gone
