What is this for?
In 2017 we published our groundbreaking report, State of Child Health – an unprecedented examination of the UK’s child health outcomes. This took a comprehensive look at the current state of child health and highlighted alarming trends, particularly for the most deprived children. We demanded urgent action to improve children’s health.
Two years later, we have produced scorecards for each UK nation showing that there’s still a long way to go to make sure children and young people in the UK can access the support and services they need to live long, healthy and happy lives.
We need your help to get our voices heard!
What do I need to do?
We want you to share your priority for child health on social media. Print one of our priority cards below, write down what you think decision makers need to do for child health and pull your best pose!
Choose one of our priority cards to either tell us what your priority for child health is or why child health matters to you – or both! We want to know what really matters to you and what you think should be done about it.
To take the perfect picture, make sure your writing is clear to read and your photo is landscape – but otherwise be as creative and colourful as you like!
When you’ve got your picture, post your photo on Twitter! Use #ChildHealthMatters in your tweet so you add your voice to our calls for action. If you’re not on Twitter, you can email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ll then add your photos to our campaign and feed your ideas in to our future State of Child Health priorities!
