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 '70/30'.
Our radical but achievable goal is necessary because 1 in 5 children will suffer ACEs during their lifetime. The 70/30 goal was created after we received support from our partners and expert advisers who agreed that 70/30 is achievable if the right policies and actions are taken by decision makers and those holding the purse strings.
We have developed specific action plans to achieve 70/30.
Over 400 MPs, MSPs, AMs, Mayors, MLAs, local councillors and others have endorsed the 70/30 campaign. Supporters across the UK from all political parties support 70/30, many taking actions with us to effect lasting change. We can't show them all but here are a few....
'WAVE Trust is undoubtedly having an impact in Parliament.'
'I am proud to endorse this campaign and I will continue to work with WAVE towards making this vision a reality.'
