Children’s Charter is an issues-based and focused community interest organisation that conducts research, educates, lobbies and accredits products and services.

We are passionate about child safety and their rights. And in particular, issues that are not getting mainstream coverage, but nevertheless are very real threats to children’s wellbeing.

As adults we have a responsibility in making sure our children are safe, healthy and happy. After all, we are all a product of our childhood and the children of today are the product of our future. So let’s strive to make the future a bright one

The Team

All our executives fulfil non-paid roles, having full-time jobs with various organisations or independent consultancy roles. We belong to Children’s Charter out of commitment to our members and a belief that we can make a difference for children and their families.
