With event series such as BRITs Week and Day Of The Girl, to new music initiatives including War Child Records and The Right To Dance, there’s something for everyone to get involved with.
About War Child
At War Child, we are driven by a single goal – ensuring a safe future for every child living through war.
We work to protect, educate and stand up for the rights of children living through conflict and go to the hardest to reach places to support those who are hardest hit. We aim to be there for children who need us most, when they need us most.
