National Children’s Day UK (NCDUK)


8f37f177216d6c74f5e2e7dd573f98a2.jpgNational Children's Day UK (NCDUK) is all about the importance of a healthy childhood and how we need to protect the rights and freedoms of children in order to ensure that they can grow into happy, healthy adults.

This year National Children’s Day UK is taking place on Sunday 13th May and people can run any kind of big or small event that they want for the week up to and including the day. From small family outings, to whole school and community events, local authority initiatives, talks, seminars and city-wide celebrations, it's an opportunity for everyone to raise awareness about the things they care about or projects they are running.

An increasingly important national event
Over the five years since its launch the day has attracted the support of hundreds of organisations throughout the UK. These include: children’s centres, nurseries and schools, local authorities, the national Play organisations, The National Trust, The Wild Network, The Football League Trust, Eureka National Children’s Museum, The Childhood Trust, the Mental Health associations, Action for Children’s Arts, Pip UK, Coram, Pre-school Learning Alliance, Steiner Waldorf Schools Fellowship, Human Values Foundation and many others.

Wendy Ellyatt, Chief Executive of the Save Childhood Movement said:
“Children in the modern world are experiencing pressures that were unknown to previous generations. National Children’s Day UK provides a wonderful opportunity for people to highlight things that are going on in the lives of children and families and issues that they care about. We hope everyone 4b8b91e5bc1fed1167243b7cbec761a1.jpgwill use the day as a platform to celebrate everything that is magical about childhood, but to also shine a light on any problems and what we can do to alleviate them".

People can run any kind of big or small activity or event that they want for the week up to and including NCDUK.
