Child Friendly Nottingham

We want Nottingham to be a Child Friendly City (CFC): we want all children and young people in Nottingham to have a good start in life, live safely, be healthy and happy and go on to have successful opportunities in adulthood. Nottingham is part of the UK Committee for UNICEF's (UNICEF UK) Child Friendly Cities and Communities programme because we also want to be officially recognised as a Child Friendly City.

We plan to work together to create a city where all children – whether they are living in care, using a children’s centre, or simply visiting their local library – have a meaningful say in, and truly benefit from, the local decisions, services and spaces that shape their lives.

Children’s Rights are at the centre of our whole approach which is the reason that we are working with UNICEF UK.

We have been in contact with over 10,000 young people, children and with parents and carers of  babies, to find out what is important to them. Our plan aims to deliver on what we were told.
