We believe that every child deserves a childhood and an equal chance to fulfil their dreams. No child’s current situation should dictate their future and we are committed to helping them to be all that they can be.
We’re currently delivering more than 85 projects to support children, young people, their families and communities to find long-lasting solutions to the challenges they face - including poverty, abuse problems, offending, and other social issues. At any one time, we’re reaching out to over 50,000 children and young people.
Just as importantly, we help vulnerable children to speak up about the things they care about. We ensure that children’s voices are heard by those who have the power to change lives. This enables more children to look forward to a future full of opportunities.
In 1867, Spurgeons was founded as a compassionate and distinctively Christian response to the plight of orphaned and vulnerable children in London. Motivated by their faith, Charles Haddon Spurgeon and his associates sought to provide shelter, education and a loving environment for the city's most vulnerable children.
Today you will find us at the heart of communities – listening, learning and building trust to make a lasting difference.
Our Christian faith remains an active and important motivation for the work we do. It forms the roots with which our peoples collective desire to help children and young people is linked to, regardless of their own beliefs.
Our work has changed considerably since the start. But our motivation has remained the same. Today we are a trusted provider for the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP), National Offender Management Service (NOMS) and work in partnership with local authorities, churches, charitable foundations and other supporters to bring about lasting change. And in addition, we work hard to secure voluntary income to offer additional support that we know is needed.
