Campaign for children

Campaign with us

For children everywhere

“You may be one person but collectively we have an influence.”

Longstanding Unicef UK campaigner Duncan believes there is power in numbers. In fact, he is one of thousands of people in the UK who campaign with us for children.

It can take just a few minutes, but it can make a world of a difference. When you sign a petition, speak to your local representatives or share your own stories with friends and family – you are taking a stand to campaign for children. You are speaking up, raising your voice and protesting for change. Because together, we are stronger.

As the world’s leading organisation for children, we’re proud to have influenced more laws and policies that protect children and their rights than anyone else.

But all this is only possible when we join together with supporters and volunteers like you.

At the heart of every campaign

Every child has rights, whatever their ethnicity, gender, religion, language, abilities or any other status.

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) forms the basis for all our work, including our campaigning. As the only organisation working for children recognised by the Convention, we are passionate about protecting the rights of every child.

When you campaign with us, you join a wider community of people advocating for children’s rights at Unicef. Behind every petition, we have a dedicated team of policy, government relations and campaign advisors who work to ensure your voice is heard, and that it leads to change.

Just in the last year, our petitions helped influence the UK government to commit to ending preventable child deaths around the world by 2030, as well as pledge continued funding for vaccines through the Global Vaccine Summit.

Help us achieve even more for children. Campaign with us today.
