Childrens charities play such an important role in the world. There are millions of children right now who need help. Who doesn't have access to basic life necessities, who don’t have access to education, and who is at risk of harm? But, what are the best children's charities to support? Below we provide information on what to look for when choosing children's charities and why Save The Children is one of the best children's charities to support.

We believe every child deserves a bright future and our vision is a world in which every child lives, learns and is safe from harm. We help millions of children and their families in over 100 countries across the globe. Here is how you can determine what children's charities are the best ones to donate to:
Choosing children charities to support - what to look for
When choosing children's charities to support the first thing to look for is whether the charity is registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission (ACNC). Being registered with the ACNC ensures they are a legitimate and regulated children's charity. All children's charities should also be transparent about how they allocate funds from donations. This information should be clear and easy to find either on their website or other marketing material. The best children's charities also have policies and/or procedures in place to ensure they are accountable and continue to stay accountable for the work they are doing, how they do it and the positive difference they are making with the donations they receive.
