Welcome to Changemakers for Children

We’re a global community of local changemakers working with vulnerable children and families.  

We believe every child should have the chance to grow up in a safe and caring environment. Unfortunately, millions don’t. This is a global issue, and it’s too big and complex for any one person to tackle alone. That’s why Family for Every Child has launched this platform as a space to come together as local practitioners working on the frontline. By sharing our wisdom and learning from each other, we can make change happen faster and more effectively for children everywhere.

Changemakers for Children is a social networking platform to help us capture learning and emerging practice from all round the world and share it more widely, so even more children and families can benefit from positive practices. It is a space for local practitioners to exchange knowledge  about what’s working on the ground, participate in discussions,  solve problems, access technical support and resources, and join advocacy initiatives.  For the wider sector, it is a platform to learn from local experts, and access information on how, and why, to best engage with local practitioners. It is a space to listen and ask.

In the context of COVID-19, working together is even more important. That’s why we’re launching with the Care During COVID-19 community of practice, to support  local practitioners working directly with children and families in their COVID-19 response and recovery. Joining Changemakers for Children is free. Simply register for access and get involved in one of our communities.
