Thoughts from the front line

We have over 1,000 blogs on our site written by Save the Children staff across all areas of the organisation and ranging across a hugely diverse set of topics. From eye witness accounts of the atrocities being inflicted on families and children in Yemen, to strong calls to action on the importance of vaccines in developing countries our diligent writers are sharing relevant, up to date content for people passionate about children’s welfare.

We also have blogs closer to home, detailing the campaigning our incredible teams are doing to protect low income families from childcare costs. We have updates from our CEO, Kevin Watkins, on his thoughts on progress made in 2018, and even an interview led by 11 year old Yusef on Kevin’s thoughts about Save the Children UK’s progress.
