Action for Children

From before they are born until they are into their twenties, we help disadvantaged children across the UK.

We help them through fostering or adoption and by intervening early to stop neglect and abuse. We make life better for children with disabilities. We influence policy and advocate for change. Our 7,000 staff and volunteers operate over 600 services, improving the lives of 370,000 children, teenagers, parents and carers every year. We succeed by doing what’s right, doing what’s needed, and doing what works for children.

Be part of Byte Night 2018!

Byte Night is our biggest annual fundraiser and you can be a part of it! This year Byte Night is taking place on Friday 5th October, across 12 locations within the UK, including Gateshead.

The event has now grown to 12 events and over 1500 people slept out in 2017. Byte Night is one of the UK’s top 20 mass participation charity events and is the largest corporate sleepout having raised over £10 million since the first event.

This is a one-off event, taking place on Friday 5th October 2018.

Byte Night’s success is all down to its volunteers and it simply could not happen without their help and hard work on the day. With only months to go before the big event, we have begun recruiting for our volunteer army! There are many roles that we will need help with on the night, from registration to raffle selling and working the finance desk. We also have 3 different shift times across the day for set-up, reception and the sleepout.

There are three shift times available for volunteers to choose from:

  • Set Up – Midday to 5pm
  • Reception – 4pm to 11:30pm
  • Sleep Out – 11pm to 7am
