Over 150 Organisations Call on Government to Prioritise Children as Much as Health and the Economy

30 June 2020

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has been widespread, affecting everybody in the country, and, in particular, this generation of children face unprecedented threats to their childhoods and life chances. They deserve an unprecedented response.

We are one of the 150+ organisations who have put out a statement calling on the Government to embrace a new vision of childhood and set out their solutions to the pressing issues facing children and young people, including child poverty, mental health, and school closures.

Children and young people are joining our call and raising their voices on social media, using #ChildrenAtTheHeart and #PowerOfYouth to share their priorities for recovery.

Join our call and show your support on social media - find out more.
