Call for Change

For too long, children's interests and voices have been neglected in our politics. We call on the UK Parliament to urgently make children's needs and welfare a priority.

Thirty years ago, the UK signed the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, which set out the civil, political, economic, social, health and cultural rights children should enjoy. Today Coram’s Call for Change highlights where, all too often, children are falling through the safety net that a civilised society should aspire to.

We set out realistic calls for changes to policy, law and practice that will transform lives and create better chances for children, in areas that include rights and justice, education and families and early years.
