Save the Children's (Rädda Barnen) task in the county is to work for children's rights at the county and county council levels, mainly through opinion forming and advocacy. The aim of its activities is to improve children's situation in the long term. Work is carried out in close collaboration with members, local organisations and international bodies, and is based on people's own will to influence and change their circumstances. Rädda Barnen also works towards giving children and young people greater influence over their lives, and to have them participate more in everything we do. Rädda Barnen has local branches in most of the county's municipalities. Activities include charity shops, discussion groups for young people, and homework help.
