We’re Action for Children and we’ve created the Big Welcome to give your welcoming story a voice.

  • Imagine the welcome foster children under your care would have if they knew more about you and the home they’re going to live in before moving in? That first day would be so much better.
  • Imagine if everyone involved in the fostering process is able to tell your story in the way that you want to be understood, throughout your fostering journey?

Who we are

The Big Welcome is an initiative led by Action for Children and funded by CBRE

Action for Children is a UK based children’s charity that helped more 387,000 children and families across the UK last year. We protect and provide practical and emotional support to children and young people, ensuring their voices are heard, and campaigning to bring lasting improvements to their lives.

We’ve been working together with CBRE since 2018 to build a better future for children in foster care. Our partnership has also funded further support to young people leaving our care with transition workers and departure funds.

We’re working with a social innovation agency, Super Being Labs, to create solutions that are focused on young people and carers, as well as complementing the work of local authorities and Independent Fostering Agencies. We want to make the fostering system better for everyone.
