WAVE Trust are delighted to announce that East Aryshire has become the seventh local authority in Scotland to pass a motion of support for the 70/30 campaign. 

The motion - which was brought to East Aryshire Council on Thursday 26th October -  formally committed the council to agree to the objectives of the Wave Trusts 70/30 campaign and to support the activities of all organisations that aim to reduce child abuse, neglect and Adverse Childhood Experiences.

Alex Williamson, Public Affairs officer for WAVE Trust, said ' I am deeply encouraged to see another council in Scotland formally express its support for our 70/30 campaign.   I pay tribute to the all the ambassadors who worked with their local councillors to ensure that this motion obtained cross party support and we look forward to working with East Aryshire council to deliver on our shared aims and objectives.
