As adults, we have the power to advocate for children’s rights, futures, and lives.

But many of us feel disempowered and uncertain when it comes to pushing for political change and advocating for the things we feel strongly about.

Let us support you as you fight to make the world a better place for the generations who follow us.

Upcoming events and workshops:

The following free events have been designed to support you as you grow in confidence as an advocate for children’s rights.

All workshops are run by Eloise Rickman. Eloise is an author, home educating parent, and founder of A Beautiful Childhood. She works with clients around the world through online courses and coaching. Her work focuses on children’s rights and liberation, and asks what parenting and education can look like through a liberation lens. Extraordinary Parenting (Scribe, 2020) is her first book, and she is currently working on her second book on children’s liberation. She is also working towards an MA in Children’s Rights. She believes that raising children can be a radical act, and that changing the way we parent and educate children has the potential to shape and change society for the better.

Eloise also has a background in politics and government, having previously had a career in political communications where she worked for the civil service and the Green Party of England and Wales.
