July Guest Campaign



Here at MNHQ, we think it makes sense to use the not-inconsiderable might of the Mumsnet collective for the greater good. That's why we regularly exchange links and public support with charities and pressure groups in areas Mumsnetters are interested in, such as special needs provision, child poverty, childcare, parenting, breastfeeding, maternity care and relationship support.


The Big Fruitea Party is World Cancer Research Fund's healthy twist on the traditional afternoon tea party. 

It's the perfect opportunity to get together with friends or family this summer and help support this cancer prevention charity at the same time. 

For those hosting a party, there are a range of free, family-friendly materials - like posters and bunting - to download. 

There's also a series of easy-to-follow recipe cards featuring healthier versions of favourites including oatmeal scones and Eton mess. 

Whatever you serve at your Big Fruitea Party, you'll be making a massive difference to our work. Sign up today!


UK SAYS NO MORE 

UK SAYS NO MORE is a campaign which aims to put an end to Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault. They believe it is the responsibility of every UK resident to stand up, take note and take an active step in ending the issue. 

Each year more than 1 million women and almost 1 million children are affected by domestic abuse across the United Kingdom, which represents a public health crisis of epidemic proportions. By sharing, endorsing and taking a stand, they believe the UK can say NO MORE to Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault.


Debt Advice Foundation


Could your family survive an "income shock". There is no typical person who is most likely to get into financial difficulty. It can literally happen to anyone, at any time. With many people having made no back-up plan for a sudden reduction in income, they find they are no longer able to meet their monthly credit commitments. What sort of thing counts as an income shock? Pretty much anything which radically lowers income, such as maternity leave, going part-time or having your hours reduced, becoming a SAHM, the end of a relationship, severe illness or job loss.



ActionAid


Alesha Dixon, Katherine Kelly, and Joanne Froggatt and other UK actors, comedians, and YouTube stars back a new digitally innovative campaign, launched by international development charity ActionAid, to raise awareness of the thousands of girls at risk of female genital mutilation (FGM) in Kenya this summer. Coinciding with the start of the school summer holidays when the threat to girls in Kenya is highest, the urgent appeal is to provide funding for safe centres for girls most at risk. The Brutal Cut campaign asks the UK public to help raise awareness by disrupting their videos and photos on social media with powerful 10 second messages from Kenyan girls at risk of FGM.
