Asking our government to keep children safe
In the United Kingdom, the campaign was launched in November 2018, asking the UK Government to make ending violence against children a priority for the UK’s humanitarian policies, programmes, and international aid.
Independent research shows that only 2.5% of all humanitarian aid given by the UK Government is spent on ending violence against children.
That’s why we called on the UK Government to invest in safer futures for the world’s children.
Our Government can make a real difference by investing in ending violence against children – making it a priority for its humanitarian aid – and by influencing other governments to do the same.
We have told the Secretary of State for International Development that keeping children safe from violence – particularly in emergencies – is important to you.
In 2019, more than 34,000 of us called on the UK Government to invest in safer futures for the world’s children. And hundreds of World Vision supporters wrote to their local MP letting them know that keeping children safe from violence must be a priority and that it takes a world to break the cycle.
Through this petition, we had meetings with the government Minister responsible for this area of policy and the calls were debated in the House of Commons.
