Back in January I told you about my visit to Kids Company and how I was humbled by Camila Batmanghelidjh and the fantastic work done by this incredible charity. I also told you that I would be sharing news of a new campaign from Kids Company.
Research shows that there are currently 1.5million children in the UK suffering squalor, abuse and neglect. Many can’t get help because the system simply can’t vote; these kids don’t have a voice so we need to help give them a voice.
Vulnerable children desperately need our help. Too many children across the country are suffering squalor, abuse and neglect. Most can’t get any help because the system simply isn’t coping. Children can’t vote and they can’t make a fuss so we need to be their voice and use our power to create change.
Please help by signing our petition to show you care. This will help support an independent task force to redesign children’s services so that every child who needs help can get it. We need to show politicians that we’re not going to stand for this anymore.
So today, I’m posting a photo of myself as a child; I had a very happy childhood but other children aren’t so lucky. I’m supporting the #seethechild campaign to change Children’s Services in the UK. Share your childhood photo, and sign the petition here to help support an independent task force to redesign children’s services so that every child who needs help can get it.
Look out for the hashtag #seethechild on twitter and please, sign the petition. See the child. Change the system.
