Who we are
What About The Children? is a group of people from a range of professional backgrounds who have come together to campaign on behalf of children too young to speak our for themselves. We have a shared concern about the importance of emotional well being of young children.
The Board of Trustees sets the strategic direction of the charity. The Trustees of the charity are also Directors of the registered company What About The Children? and undertake the work and activities of the charity with support of members and those with the technical or professional skills needed for particular projects.
