Dorset Services

Corona virus may change some of the ways we work, but our services are still open.


Action for Children Dorset works with children and young people across the county to ensure they have the love, support and opportunity they need to reach their potential.


Our services include advocacy, children's centres, parenting programmes, a nightstop service and more.


Have a question about parenting?


Action for Children is offering free online parenting support for families with children aged 0 – 19. You can ask us for help on all sorts of things – from how to keep your children entertained at home, to how to handle difficult behaviour, to how to manage stress and anxiety at this challenging time.


Head to parents.actionforchildren.org.uk to read our advice and useful resources or talk directly to a parenting coach via our confidential 1-1 live chat.


Whatever you need, Action for Children are here to listen and support you.
