The 70/30 Campaign

What is the 70/30 campaign?

We are a UK- and Ireland-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.  Click to see our campaign priorities.

The 70/30 Campaign was created after we received guidance 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.

This campaign is also supported by many individuals who have lived experience of early life trauma and its impact - and their powerful insight into how things could change. You can see more details of our Council of Lived Experience above.

Join the campaign today so together we can make this vision a reality.

"I do not view 70/30 as either wishful thinking or an unachievable goal. On the contrary, reducing child maltreatment by 70% [by 2030] is the minimum acceptable outcome in responding to this unacceptable, and profoundly costly, harm to our youngest children."

(Professor Sir Harry Burns, former Chief Medical Officer, Scotland)

"We must never lose sight of the damage abuse and neglect has on children, both at the time of the experience and into their future. I support the WAVE Trust’s 70/30 Campaign to reduce the amount of children who suffer abuse and neglect by 70% by 2030 and to take a public health approach to tackling abuse."
