I recently delivered a letter to 10 Downing Street calling on the Prime Minister to end cuts to services for children and young people. Despite being the 6th largest economy in the world, 3.7 million of our children currently live in absolute poverty. This is absolutely disgraceful. Councils up and down the country are struggling to provide essential services – they continue to face a funding gap of £8bn by 2025. The Prime Minister must act now.
No investment in children and young people means no future.
