Happy World Children’s Day to children everywhere!
World Children’s Day was first established in 1954 as Universal Children’s Day and is celebrated each year to improve children’s welfare and promote awareness among children worldwide.
The theme for this year is ‘A Better Future for Every Child’, and at The Royal Children’s Hospital, we strive to provide a place where patients feel safe and heard by our staff to ensure positive health outcomes for every child’s future.
We asked you what your child wants to see for a better future, and here are some of our favourite responses!
- “Inclusion for all kids” – Soph
- “More plants” – Jenni
- “For no child to ever have to be sick and for all kids to be happy” – Amelia
- “A more inclusive and wider range of mental health services” – Gina
It’s more important than ever that we listen to our children to create a better future for them.
