We’re helping children in the UK and all over the world. We’re there for every child. Will you help give a child the best start?

All over the world, including in the UK, we’re working to give children the best start in life – but we need your help.

You can help support our work to make childbirth safe and help children grow up happy and healthy, wherever they are. We work in 190 countries and reach more children than any other organisation – including over 2 million here in the UK every year.

As well as our work around the world, we work in more than 90% of maternity units in the UK. We work with schools and communities to create inspiring places for children to grow and learn, where children are respected, their talents are nurtured, and they are able to thrive.

Your gift could save a child’s life, so please give today. By giving to Unicef, you’re helping give children the best start – wherever they are.
