The results of our 2021 WeCare and Child Friendly Spaces programme are in. This year, The Centre implemented WeCare in four countries (Bangladesh, China, Turkey and Vietnam) delivering activities that not only benefited parent workers, children and young workers, but also created positive impact for all business partners involved.
See our 2021 WeCare and Child Friendly Spaces Programme Info and Achievements brochure below for a detailed overview of this year’s achievements and impact.
We are now inviting brands, retailers and factories to participate in our 2022 WeCare and Child Friendly Spaces programmes. Implementing these programmes in your supply chain minimises child labour risks and strengthens worker well-being through family friendly workplaces activities, at the same time offering demonstrative business benefits.
Contact us to learn more about how you and your suppliers can join this programme in 2022.
What is WeCare?
WeCare is a package of services to create family-friendly workplaces at production sites in supply chains. Our popular Child Friendly Spaces service is offered as part of the WeCare package (but can also be implemented as a stand-alone service). The services support suppliers to implement policies, practices and programmes that enable their workers to fulfil their role as parents, meet personal development goals, and fulfil responsibilities at work. WeCare services include support for parent workers, responsible recruitment, childcare provision, parenting skills, maternal health and breastfeeding, support for young workers including juvenile workers, flexible working arrangements and other relevant well-being issues.
