Hundreds of thousands of vulnerable children in the UK need care and protection in order to ensure that they can live safe and happy lives, free from neglect, abuse and exploitation. Spurgeons’ staff are committed to providing the support that will enable these children to enjoy their childhood and fulfil their true potential. Spurgeons is one of the UK’s most well-respected charities. We have been working tirelessly on behalf of vulnerable children since the charity was first founded, 140 years ago.
