National Children's Day UK 2017

National 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 14th 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 get-togethers to local community events and talks - it's a great opportunity for people to raise awareness and support for projects they are running or things that they care about.

Over the four years since its launch the initiative has worked with more than a hundred partners and in 2016 it helped raise more than £540k for disadvantaged children and achieved a Facebook reach of 3.2 million.
