TGSF advocates and campaigns for change to realise children's and young people’s rights and to ensure that their voices are heard.  

What is advocacy?

For TGSF, advocacy is the work we do to influence the policies and actions of governments, international institutions and the private sector, in order to achieve positive changes in children’s and young people’s lives.

Our advocacy and campaigns build on the insights generated by our programmes around the world. We know that we can only sustain the impact of our programmes, and take that impact to scale, by persuading and challenging governments and other institutions with power and resources to change their own policies and practice. Advocacy encompasses research and policy analysis, lobbying, communications and public campaigning.

In different situations, our advocacy can be focused on securing formal policy changes; driving implementation; or creating an enabling environment for change.
