‘Sdim Curo Plant! Cymru/Children Are Unbeatable! Wales
The Sdim Curo Plant!/Children Are Unbeatable campaign is based at Children in Wales, a member of the UK-wide CAU! Alliance. It was launched in September 2000 to co-ordinate and promote the campaign in Wales. The aims of the campaign are:
- to change the law so that children and young people have the same protection from being hit as adults
- a public education campaign about why ‘smacking’ children is not OK to accompany law reform
- for parents to have lots of information and practical advice and support about alternatives to ‘smacking’ and using a positive approach to bringing up children

The Global Initiative to End All Corporal Punishment was launched in Geneva in 2001. It aims to act as a catalyst to encourage more action and progress towards ending all corporal punishment in all continents; to encourage governments and other organisations to “own “ the issue and work actively on it; and to support national campaigns with relevant information and assistance. The context for all its work is implementation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. It aims are supported by UNICEF, UNESCO, human rights institutions, and international and national NGOs.
Churches Network for Non-violence
The Churches’ Network for Non-violence, a UK-based international charity, was formed to broaden religious support for law reform to end corporal punishment of children and other cruel and humiliating forms of violence against children and to challenge faith-based justification for it. CNNV aims to work with others towards developing a network of support, practical resources and information and to encourage religious communities of all faiths to play an active role in the movement for reform.
