WAVE Trust would like to officially announce that, with the formal endorsement of Mr Philip Davies MP,  our 70/30 Campaign to reduce child maltreatment by 70% by 2030 is now supported by 600 Members of Parliament.

This is a momentous achievement and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our ambassadors for their countless hours of advocacy on our behalf: this result is a testimony to your efforts.

Mr Davies, MP for Shipley, said: "I am delighted and honoured to be the 600th Member of Parliament to support the 70/30 campaign. Childhood should be a time of joy, exploration, and discovery.

"WAVE Trust's 70/30 campaign is a vital initiative in ensuring that all children have the chance to experience these joys, free from the trauma and abuse that can have lifelong consequences. I wholeheartedly support the WAVE Trust's efforts to create a world where every child has the opportunity to thrive."

Alex Williamson, Public Affairs Officer at WAVE Trust, said: "I would like to personally thank Mr Davies for his well considered response and for his willingness to give his public support to our work.

"As outlined by Mr Davies, we believe every child has the right to grow up in an environment that is free from neglect and abuse so, as the knowledge base around the first 1001 days of life continue to develop, it is our hope that we will begin to see our decision makers undertaking further efforts to implement preventive driven policies."
