It's really busy at WCW HQ!
We have a World Childless Week Champions and team meeting this week with a busy agenda. We've got some exciting news to share very soon about the Champions, watch this space but you'll also see we've added new faces: Meriel Whale, Rod Silvers, James Petherick and Yvonne John.
We are so pleased to have Champions that approach childlessness from all demographics, genders and disabilities. It's important that we speak for everyone and for as many countries as possible too. We really do mean World!
You'll also be finding out from each Champion why they are supporting World Childless Week in their own words starting with an article from Vicky this week. We hope you'll find them inspiring.
