Give us a Chancellor
Join our call for the Chancellor to re-think what this generation of children and young people need and the investment that demands.
Earlier this year NCB brought people and organisations together to ask the Chancellor to listen to children and young people and take action to protect their future.
Our analysis of the spending review outlined on 25 November shows that the approach is still too piecemeal to deliver a better childhood for the UK’s children.
While the Treasury has made much needed spending commitments in some areas, there have been major omissions in others:
- No commitments to counteract rising child poverty.
- No support to make babies and young children a priority.
- Not enough to protect young people’s mental health.
- No solution to the sustained crisis in children’s social care.
On 14 December, children, young people and parents joined an online meeting of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Children to discuss these issues directly with 20 Parliamentarians including Treasury officials and advisers from the No.10 policy unit.
You can continue to support our campaign by calling on the Government to #GIveUsAChancellor who is prepared to fund a new vision of childhood.
