We are a volunteer organisation of people who care about children.
We campaign for their needs to be prioritised in response to decisions on Coronavirus, and beyond. We speak for children because we believe that a society which put children first would be brighter and fairer. We speak for children because often children cannot speak for themselves.
We launched in May 2020 in response to the first wave of closures of schools across the UK; a decision which had, and sadly continues to have, a devastating impact on children. Reopening schools remains our primary campaign. On the day we set up, there were three of us. There are now tens of thousands of others. We span generations and come from different walks of life. We live all over the UK. Some are parents, some aren’t, but we share a common desire to see children put first.
You can see our MISSION STATEMENT here.
We speak for children of the United Kingdom regardless of birthplace or socio-educational circumstances. We speak for children in state schools as well as those in private schools.
We speak for them because unlike many other groups, children don’t vote or have unions. We speak for them because we are hardwired to protect them and because we love them.
We are people who care about children.
Grandparents, teachers, carers, guardians. Academics and professionals spanning distance, geography, and fields. Some of us are parents, some aren’t, but what we have in common is that we want to put children first.
We hope the very fact that you are reading this means you are thinking of joining us. There are many ways you can get involved, but the main thing is that for our voice to be heard we need to grow.
