SMG incorporates five key sites nationwide; the Science Museum in South Kensington, the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester, the National Media Museum in Bradford, and the National Railway Museum in York and Shildon.

Unicef promotes the rights and
wellbeing of every child, in everything they do. Together with their partners, they work to
translate that commitment into practical action, focusing special effort on
reaching the most vulnerable and excluded children, to the benefit of all
children, everywhere. Operating in 190
countries and territories, Unicef’s global reach is far beyond that of any
other children’s charity. They already
ensure more of the world’s children are fed, vaccinated, educated and protected
than any other organisation, and have done more to influence laws, policies and
customs to help protect children than anyone else in history.
