'All the work I do is vital and essential. But too much of it is reactive. We are waiting for accidents to happen – it can be like watching a car crash. I no longer only want to be involved in picking up the pieces.'

Deborah, secondary school safeguarding lead and 70/30 Ambassador

'I do not view 70/30 as either wishful thinking or an unachievable goal. On the contrary, it is the minimum acceptable outcome in responding to this unacceptable (and profoundly costly) harm to our youngest children.'

Sir Harry Burns, former Chief Medical Officer for Scotland and WAVE strategic adviser

'Donations will support our evidence-based programme to give families and communities toolkits and strategies to address trauma, self-care and stress management skills, and expertise in creating spaces in which healing can happen.

'This work can prevent mental health crises, violence and – for some – lifetimes of disadvantage. And through our 70/30 network we will use our successes to catalyse nationwide change.

'What we need now is your generosity to fund this work with schools and communities near you.'

Anthoulla Koutsoudi, WAVE company secretary
