Children on the Edge (COTE) working with The Body Shop exists to help marginalised and forgotten children who are living on the edge of their societies.
These are children without parental care, neglected or persecuted by their governments, ignored by international media and missed by large overseas agencies. They are children on the edge of society.
Forgotten – but not by us. Everyone deserves a childhood.

This week is Neighbourhood Watch Week 2019 where we’ll be celebrating the amazing work our volunteers do in their communities. We’ll be looking at areas where you expect Neighbourhood Watch to operate in and around (burglary) as well as some more unexpected ones (knife violence and social isolation).
Our message this year is that when it comes to Neighbourhood Watch, there is #MoreThanYouExpect.
To kick start the week we have today the national neighbourhood watch organisation has launched Neighbourhood Watch Inspiration, a collection of the most innovative work being undertaken by our volunteers across England and Wales.
The database contains examples of how Neighbourhood Watch groups are changing their communities for the better. In each case, volunteers explain how they developed their project, the impact it had on their community and how they overcame any challenges.
Neighbourhood Watch Inspiration allows users to contact the author of each example with the hope of generating fruitful conversations between members.
We’re encouraging members to tell their stories on social media. How has Neighbourhood Watch helped your community? Why should people start their own schemes? Be sure to use the hashtag #MoreThanYouExpect when you post!
