Make a Real Difference for Young Children

The elections for the new European Parliament in May 2019 comes at a significant turning point for the European Union.

The departure of the United Kingdom from the European Union (Brexit) has proved to be an area of considerable debate and uncertainty both internally within the UK and at UK-EU level.

We ask the Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) to protect and defend children’s rights when elected in May.

We call on our European Parliamentary representatives to foster initiatives that will protect and support the rights of all children in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

We ask that six areas are progressed and prioritised.

We are asking for the public’s support in raising these key manifesto calls with the political candidates and to share with your contacts, to help support the rights of children across Ireland.
