About Us


It’s what we’ve been doing since 1886, in one form or another!

We passionately believe that every child and young person has the right to achieve their full potential, whatever their background or circumstances – and, as a result, we work with over 6000 children, young people and families in the North West of England every year.  We work in the heart of communities – often in partnership with other organisations – to end family cycles of deprivation, drug and alcohol abuse, lack of self-esteem, youth crime, teenage pregnancies and broken families.

As a result, we help to strengthen individuals, families and communities so that children and young people can lead healthy and meaningful lives, with the opportunity to succeed in school, to grow up to enjoy healthy relationships, to have access to training and employment opportunities and to be successful in the world of work.

Child Action Northwest won our Social Enterprise of the Year Award in 2019 AND 2021, and Environmental Champion of the Year in 2022 – plus Rachael Gallagher of Child Action North West won our Employee of the Year Award in 2019, Natalie Hall of CANWe Solutions won our Social Enterprise Employee of the Year in 2021, and Dominic Hawke won Social Enterprise Employee of the Year Award in 2022!
