Campaign with us

For children everywhere

With you, we’re here to protect and promote children’s rights

We campaign to stand up for children’s rights. In fact, we’ve done more to influence laws and policies to protect children than anyone else.

We know that campaigning can make a difference, but we can only do it with your support.

From signing petitions, to telling your MP to act, sharing our stories with your friends and family to raising awareness locally. These are the actions that win campaigns and help children.

"Everybody can help. It's all about getting enough numbers involved," says Unicef UK Campaigner, Duncan. "You may be one person but collectively we have an influence."

Tell the PM to deliver on his election promise

Our role in defending children’s rights

Every child has rights, whatever their ethnicity, gender, religion, language, abilities or any other status. These rights are set out in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), which is the basis for all of our work, including our campaigning.

The UNCRC is the most widely ratified human rights treaty in the world and Unicef is the only organisation working for children recognised by the Convention.

As we celebrate 30 years of the UNCRC, we are urging the Prime Minister to deliver his election promise to end preventable deaths of children under 5.
