The 70/30 Network

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.

‘Research, led by the Wave Trust and others, into Adverse Childhood Experiences has found that failing to prioritise early years generates enormous problems for the future in terms of social disruption, inequality, mental and physical health problems, and cost. That’s why for example, I support the Wave Trust’s 70/30 campaign to bring about a 70 per cent reduction in child maltreatment by the year 2030. So investing in and supporting our Health Visitors will be a priority of mine in Government.’
