About Action for Children Dorset

Action for Children Dorset runs a number of different services for children, young people and their families across the county.

Children and young people

We work with children and young people across Dorset to ensure they have the love, support and opportunity they need to reach their potential.

This includes offering advocacy and a safe place to stay for homeless young people aged 16-25 through our Nightstop service

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, challenging behaviour information sessions and children's centres.

Find out more about how we support parents and carers.

Professionals

We also work with professionals to help them find the right support for those in their care. If you're a professional, find out how we can work with you.

Volunteers

But we couldn't do all this 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.

We are commissioned to run services on behalf of Dorset NHS Clinical Commissioning Group, Dorset County Council, and the Borough of Poole and Bournemouth Borough Council.
