Who we are

“West London Action for Children promotes the wellbeing of children in need, working with them, their families and carers to help them achieve positive change”

We are a registered charity working in the boroughs of Hammersmith and Fulham and Kensington and Chelsea offering services to families and children. We aim to meet the different needs of the local communities.

We offer free counselling and therapy. We also run a range of parenting groups and groups for children in schools.

We have been providing independent and confidential services to families since 1917. We are funded by many different trusts, funding bodies and individual donations.

We listen to families and support them in using their own skills and resources to address problems and make decisions. Our work is based on the belief that families are the experts on their own situations.

We work with families, teenagers and children facing many different challenges and experiences. Some of these have included: Domestic violence, bereavement, divorce and separation, school exclusions, bullying and truancy, mental health concerns, parenting difficulties, resettlement trauma, substance misuse, experiences of abuse and racism among others.
