SAFEGUARDING CHILDREN

Bye Buy Childhood  2015 report available from www.byebuychildhood.org

The report contains up-to-date research into parents’ views and concerns around the commercialisation and sexualisation of childhood, and compares this with our research from 2010.  (19th March 2015 )

 

Mothers’ Union members are supporting families and communities through praying, campaigning and enabling. Campaigning is key to speaking out and in getting our message across to government and the public. We work in an advisory capacity and with other organisations; these are some websites to strengthen your family and help in the work of the Mothers’ Union worldwide.
