March 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.

Every month, we highlight as many as 8 Guest Campaigns by charities or not-for-profit organisations. You can read all about our March 2016 Guest Campaigns below.

The Children's Society

The challenges for 16- and 17-year-olds who are sexually exploited are much more than awkward - they're serious.

Most sexually exploited 16- and 17-year-olds don't get protection or justice for these shocking crimes.

They are falling through the cracks in the law, without the same basic protections as younger children.

The Children's Society's Seriously Awkward campaign has a crucial opportunity to secure change with The Policing and Crime Bill currently going through Parliament. But they need your help. Ask your MP to stand up for exploited teenagers.

Take action now join the Seriously Awkward campaign.

Alzheimer's Research UK

Yoga enthusiasts and newcomers alike are invited to limber up for Yoga for Alzheimer's - a national event launched in aid of Alzheimer's Research UK. 

The initiative encourages people to get into their favourite yoga positions while raising money to help find treatments for dementia, which affects 850,000 people nationwide. 

Sessions will take place at 16 venues from Sunday 12 June 2016 to International Yoga Day on Tuesday 21 June 2016. 

So what are you waiting for? Sign up, grab your yoga mat and head down to your nearest venue.

Plan UK

Over a fifth of British women aged 18 and over say they've experienced unwanted sexual contact in or around school as girls. 

It's a global issue: this school year, 246 million children worldwide will be affected by violence at school. 

Help girls to Learn Without Fear by joining Plan UK's campaign so they can put a stop to it.

Carers UK

It's said it takes a village to raise a child. Especially when your child has a disability. Or if you're also looking after your folks.

Most of us don't live in villages where everyone's willing to pitch in. That's exactly how Carers UK's care organiser app Jointly can help. 

Jointly creates a virtual village of family and friends who can help care for your child. Or your ageing parents. Co-ordinate pick-ups, appointments medication and a multitude of other tasks, keeping everyone in the know with a tap, swipe, click.

Looking after loved ones is easier when we do it Jointly.

Crohn's & Colitis UK

WALK IT is the new nationwide walks initiative from Crohn’s & Colitis UK. 

Consisting of six fantastic walks around the country, the campaign is focused on raising awareness and vital funds for the charity, to help support those living with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), of which Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis are the two main forms.

The campaign is backed by TV personalities Sam Faiers and Rylan Clark-Neal, who both have experience of living with IBD and who are also set to ‘WALK IT’. 

With picturesque routes from 5-10k, mums and families are invited to WALK IT to help raise funds and support the 300,000+ UK residents currently affected.
