This year National Children’s Day UK is on Sunday 14th May.
National Children’s Day UK is an initiative of the Save Childhood Movement that was established in 2013 and represents individuals and organisations that share a deep concern about societal values and wellbeing and the current erosion of natural childhood.
The concept of Children’s Day was established by the UN General Assembly in 1954 as a day of worldwide fraternity and understanding between children. The Assembly suggested to governments that the day be observed on the date and in the way which each considers appropriate. In the UK it was launched by the Save Childhood Movement in 2014 and is now held at the beginning of summer.
