The Children’s Alliance began as an initiative by Water Babies to broaden politicians’ awareness of the health and wellbeing issues currently facing children in the UK and a push to create a ministerial position dedicated to the health and wellbeing of children. Stemming from that has grown an acknowledgement that we are all responsible for creating a better, brighter future for new generations. The old adage that “it takes a village to raise a child” promotes the idea that we can all help to make a difference in children’s lives. So that’s what we’re doing at the Children’s Alliance. We are finding ways to provide better starts, and therefore brighter futures, for children throughout the UK through both political and community channels and we want you to join us. Be a part of our story.
Tommy's are a pregnancy charity working to make the UK the safest place in the world to give birth, supported by people who refuse to accept that a baby's death is just 'one of those things'. The people who support them want to do something about the lack of research and information around pregnancy issues. Like Tommy's, they believe every parent has the right to a healthy pregnancy and baby.
The leading charity dedicated to creating a world without barriers for the 50,000 young Deaf people in the UK.
Too many Deaf children are being denied the chance to learn to swim, as many organisations simply don't understand their needs. That's why at Water Babies, we're committed to making our lessons as inclusive as possible, using demonstrations, swim cards and baby signs in our lessons. Find out more.
We have a long-standing relationship with Swim England, the national governing body for swimming. Our programme falls directly in line with Swim England and RoSPA (The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents) guidelines, using highly skilled and qualified teachers and delivering lessons backed up with research. We worked with them and the Institute of Swimming (their training arm) to create the Level 3 Teaching pre-school qualification, which is the highest qualification that our teachers can gain.
