Change a young person's life and they might just change yours too.
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 our incredible teams of colleagues and volunteers.
Working with Spurgeons allows you to make a real difference in the lives of many young people, and gain a host of other benefits too. All our employees bring something unique to Spurgeons and we value their contribution.
Volunteers are an integral part of the work we do at Spurgeons. Our volunteers support us across every department and in each of our Children's Centres. They are an essential part of our success story and we recognise the huge contribution they make to our mission supporting children, young people and their families across the country.
