Our campaigns

Our campaigns make a real difference to the lives of children and young people - and that’s down to you.

With your support, we’ve achieved major changes in legislation and protected children’s rights.  

Together we’ve made sure sustained emotional abuse is recognised as a crime. We’ve helped young people in Wales stay in care longer if they need to. And we’ve convinced the Government to set up a savings scheme for children in care 

But there’s lots more to do. Here’s how you can help.

Urge government to Choose Childhood  

Every child deserves a safe and happy childhood. Yet there are more children in care and more children are identified as being at risk of harm. Children don’t choose their lives - but we can choose to act. Urge government to commit to a national plan for children now, before things get worse.

Domestic abuse doesn't just affect adults, it affects children too. We’ve been campaigning to ensure that child victims of domestic abuse can access the support they need to recover.
