Campaign with us

For children everywhere

We declare War on Disease

Children have the power to change the world, yet millions every year do not even reach their fifth birthday.

That is why Unicef has declared a War on Disease. War on measles, pneumonia and other preventable diseases that claim so many children’s lives around the world.

Tell Party Leaders to help us fight disease, so children don’t have to.

Campaigning for children

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. Whether it’s signing petitions, telling your MP to act, sharing our stories with your friends or raising awareness locally, these are the actions that win campaigns and help children.

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. Unicef is the only organisation working for children recognised by the Convention.

This year, on the 30th anniversary of the UNCRC, we are urging the Prime Minister to help end the preventable deaths of children under 5.

Campaign with us now.

Campaigners Duncan and Jum at the Welcome Refugees march in September 2016. Campaign with us, like Duncan and Jum, to help defend the rights of 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."
