A Network of People Can Make a World of Difference
We are that network of people. A passionate group of mums, dads, health professionals, students and others committed to making a real difference – dedicated to bringing about a 70% reduction in child maltreatment by the year 2030. We are the 70/30 Campaign.
To achieve this reduction we need to prevent the maltreatment of children before it happens by tackling its root causes. This means providing support to parents who may be struggling with mental health issues, substance abuse, domestic problems or other issues. Early, effective support can help mums and dads to deal with these issues and will reduce overall levels of child harm.
The 70/30 campaign was started by and is supported by renowned primary prevention charity, WAVE Trust. WAVE has over 2 decades of research knowledge and experience in understanding the root causes of child maltreatment. WAVE creates ground-breaking, preventive solutions and works with local partners to pilot them.
The 70/30 goal was created after WAVE received support from its partners and experts who agreed that 70/30 is achievable IF the right policies and actions are taken by decision makers and those holding the purse strings. The 70/30 Ambassador Network was formed to make 70/30 a reality.
Empowering communities to protect our children. People power is what will make system change happen in our communities to protect babies, and in doing so reduce social inequality and relieve pressure on squeezed local budgets.
We’re recruiting 70/30 ambassadors from all over the UK who are going out into their communities and spreading the word on our behalf! They’re meeting with their local MPs, Councillors, organisations and charities to see how 70/30 can become a reality for the children in their community.
AND it’s working! We’ve got lots of MPs, organisations and others now endorsing 70/30. Local 70/30 groups have also taken off in lots of different areas across the country. The more people shout about 70/30, the sooner it will be achieved.
Did you know that during their lifetime, more than 1 in 5 children will suffer significant abuse or neglect? 90% of them will receive no help at all.
But Together We Can Make a Change. Here’s How to Get Involved…
Becoming a 70/30 ambassador means pushing for change and making a real stand against child abuse and neglect. We’re recruiting passionate and driven ambassadors to do just that, no experience required! We’ll provide all the guidance and training you’ll need for your time with us. Discover more about our ambassador programme here.
Our ambassadors are at the very centre of what the 70/30 stands for. If you have the time and dedication and find yourself at a loss for ambassador groups in your local area, then why not start a group of your own?
