We need your support if Every Child Counts is to succeed.
There are many ways you can help:
Take action for children!
Children cannot vote, and their issues and needs do not always get the attention they deserve — in national or local government policy. They do not have powerful interest groups that represent them, but they do have people who can and want to be powerful voices on their behalf. So join us in being a voice for children.
Take action in your community
We are looking for supporters who are willing to take action in support of children in their local community, if you are interested let us know and we can provide more information. Please email here.
Write letters to your local newspaper
People read letters in newspapers — especially the smaller community papers. It is therefore a great way to explain what Every Child Counts stands for. For useful tips check this out Advocacy Toolkit.
Write letters to political parties and candidates
Maybe you have writing skills. Then why not spend a few minutes writing a letter to your local candidates outlining what Every Child Counts stands for and seeking their views? For useful tips go to our Advocacy Toolkit.
Volunteer your technical or professional expertise
All of us have something we are really good at or have special training. You know what expertise you have, so email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org

Every dollar helps!
Persuading the general public and our politicians to give children a better chance costs a lot of money. If we are going to make politicians really aware of the needs of our children, frankly, we need your help.
