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 explosion in Beirut to strong calls to action on the importance of education for girls and inspiring facts about the importance of vaccines, 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 need to galvanise public support for tackling child poverty in the UK. We have updates from our CEO, Kevin Watkins, on remaining hopeful in unprecendented times, and even an interview led by 11-year-old Yusef on Kevin’s thoughts about Save the Children UK’s progress.
