Parents have a right and a primary duty to raise their children, look after their well-being, and enable them to thrive; this is enshrined in both national and international law. We engage with stakeholders for parental primacy in policy.
Family units are a source of emotional support, love, security and protection to children. We speak up for the family unit to be protected and honoured in policy.
