Lockdown has left many families at greater risk of domestic abuse and violence.

Your support can help strengthen families, protect children and restore hope.

Our mission

Inspired by our Christian faith, our mission is to improve the lives of families and children who are struggling to cope and give every child the opportunity of a hope-filled life.

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.

Young Carers Action Day

Please share your support this Young Carers Action Day

Spurgeons supports around 800 young people through our young carers services in Birmingham and Wolverhampton. These young people are caring for a family member with an illness or disability. They have to grow up too fast - the need to balance their caring responsibilities with school leaves them little time to have fun with their friends.

At the same time, many of these young people are proud to say that they are, and to be identified as, a young carer, and want to highlight the incredible skills they have developed through being a carer - like resilience, time-management and empathy.
