Did you know that over 57,000 children are identified as needing protection from abuse in the UK? (Child protection register and plan statistics for all UK Nations 2015)
The NSPCC estimate that for every child identified as needing protection from abuse, another 8 are suffering abuse. (NSPCC – How safe are our children, 2013)
These short videos give more information and statistics:
These are scary statistics but we can’t ignore them. The NSPCC work tirelessly to keep our children safe.
One to One midwives are in a privileged position to work closely with families, and get to know them. To support them when things aren’t quite as they should be and ensure the children get the support and protection they require.
The One to One Safeguarding Team have decided to raise some funds for the NSPCC this year. Two members of the team, Katie Wainwright and Jennifer Morrison are going to complete a 100-mile bike ride on the 24th September 2017 around the city of Birmingham.
To be able to do this, and support the wonderful work of the NSPCC they need to raise £800.
They have already raised £170, which is 21% of the target, but they are still a long way off.
This is a massive challenge for them both – Jennifer currently doesn’t have a bike, and Katie gets out of breath making a cup of tea!
They are up for the challenge and have got their training plans through and are ready to get going!
Please consider supporting us to raise the rest of the money needed. There is a just giving page set up to collect donations:
Thank you to everyone who has already sponsored the team, and to those of you that go on to sponsor us.
