''It was the difference between life and death for me. Seriously it was.''
Watch our latest video to hear about the range of support services provided by Spurgeons to vulnerable children and families across the country.
No child should face life's struggles alone
In 1867, Baptist preacher and writer, Charles Haddon Spurgeon, was inspired by his faith to found an orphanage in London, offering vulnerable children care and education. Today, his work continues through Spurgeons Children's Charity.
The way in which we support children and families has changed enormously over 150 years.
We started with six boys and a single 'Matron'. Now, each year we will typically have contact with around 30,000 children and young people and protect hundreds from harm.
At Spurgeons, we believe every child deserves the opportunity to live a happy and hope-filled life; that no child should face abuse, neglect or uncertainty.
We couldn't do this without your support.
