The Children’s Media Foundation

APPG

The Children's Media Foundation is active in the political sphere, lobbying Government, Parliament and political parties

The CMF was instrumental in setting up the All Party Parliamentary Group  on Children's Media and the Arts in June 2011. It provides members of both Houses with information about the fast-moving world of children's media and cultural activity.

The group is currently co-chaired by Baroness Benjamin of Beckenham (Lib Dem) and Julie Elliott MP (Labour - Sunderland Central), with Andrew Rosindell MP (Romford - Conservative), and Baroness McIntosh of Hudnall (Labour) serving as officers.

The APPG strives to uphold the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, which states that every child has the right to enjoy and participate in cultural and artistic activities, be given news and information appropriately, and educated so that their personality, talents and abilities are developed to the full.
