30,000-strong petition calls for action on child poverty

After months of campaigning across the country – from West Dorset to Glasgow East, Streatham to East Londonderry – Save the Children campaigners went to 10 Downing Street on 16 June to deliver a clear mandate for action on child poverty to the Prime Minister.

30,000 Save the Children supporters want the new government to take urgent action on severe child poverty in the UK, and to stop children and mothers dying from entirely preventable causes in the world’s poorest countries.

Read our calls to the new government around this week’s G8 and emergency budget.
