About Action for Children Dorset

Action for Children Dorset delivers services for children, young people and their families across the county.

Parents and carers

Being a parent or carer to a child or young person can be challenging at times. We’re here to help you with our parenting programmes and Behaviours That Challenges Us Information Sessions 

Find out more about how we support parents and carers.

Children and young people who are homeless

We work with children and young people across Dorset to ensure a safe place to stay for homeless young people, from anywhere in Dorset, aged 16-25 through our Nightstop service


We cannot provide our Nightstop Service without the support of our fantastic volunteers. If you'd like to find out how you can become a part of what we do, visit our volunteers page.

Our partners

We are commissioned to run our Parenting Programmes on behalf of Dorset NHS.
