Aviva and Railway Children are working together with Mumsnet to help support vulnerable children in the UK.

Railway Children and Aviva
Railway Children and Aviva have been working together for a couple of years now as part of Aviva's Street to School programme, which champions the needs of street children around the world. Their goal is to support children under 16 who've run away from home, or are at risk of doing so – but also to support children after they've returned home or gone back into care. Find out more about Aviva's partnership with Railway Children here.
Through their partnership, they have reached more than 30,000 young people so far, both by education and prevention programmes and Aviva's investment in projects across the UK.
