National Hope Day is a day of awareness founded by the Child Help organisation, and falls on the first Wednesday in April of each year. The day is dedicated to helping provide support to children who are in situations where they are experiencing abuse and neglect. To draw attention to the campaign, we’ve put together 13 inspirational quotes about hope.
