CEO Ruth Marvel shows her support for ‘Children at the Table’ campaign

As we gear up to a general election, we’ve joined over 100 charities to support the Children’s Charities Coalition Children at the Table campaign. Calling on leaders to put children’s needs at the heart of the next government.

Ruth Marvel, CEO of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, said:

“At The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, we know first-hand how experiences in adolescence go on to shape and define young people’s lives.

‘It is not right that almost three-quarters of children do not feel listened to by those who can deliver meaningful change. Young people have a right to a seat at the table and to have their voices heard.

‘The next Government has an opportunity to put young people at the heart of a bold agenda that will transform their lives for the better. We look forward to seeing that happen.”
