Campaigning for change in children's health
Bringing health issues to the attention of the public and decision makers including the Government is an important part of WellChild’s role.
WellChild campaigns aim to improve the health and quality of life of children and young people, particularly those with serious illness or complex health care needs.
Currently the Royal College of Nursing and WellChild are working together on the Better at Home Campaign which highlights issues relating to children with long term complex health conditions.
In addition, we have joined together with one strong voice to support End Child Poverty. One in three children lives in poverty in the UK despite it being the fifth wealthiest country in the world. By signing up to this campaign, we are supporting the aim of holding the Government to its promise of halving child poverty by 2010 and ending it by 2020.
Through our involvement with children’s health charity ACT and Children’s Hospice UK we are campaigning for iimprovements to palliative care for children with life threatening and life limiting conditions.
