UNICEF is the world’s leading organisation working  for children and their rights. We work with families, local communities, partners and governments in 191 countries to help every child realise their full potential. We provide health care, nutrition and education. We protect children affected by war, natural disasters and HIV/AIDS.

UNICEF works in the UK to champion children’s rights, to win support and raise money for our work with children worldwide. UNICEF UK was established in 1956 and is one of 36 UNICEF National Committees based in industrialised countries.

UNICEF is not funded by the UN. Instead, we rely entirely on voluntary donations from individuals, governments, trusts, corporations and UNICEF groups.
