We are a UK-wide network of individuals, organisations and elected representatives working together to reduce child abuse, neglect and other adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) by at least 70% by the year 2030. We call this goal the 70/30 Campaign.
This ambitious, but feasible goal is necessary because at least half of children in the UK will suffer ACEs during their childhood.
The 70/30 Campaign was created after we received support from our partners and expert advisers who agreed that a 70% reduction is achievable if the right policies and actions are taken by decision-makers and those holding the purse strings. Join today so we can make this vision a reality.
