Holding governments to account

Action for Children is committed to holding governments to account for the impact their decisions have on disadvantaged children, and to speak out where we see that the most vulnerable are being disproportionately affected by government policy.

Following the coalition government's first spending review in 2010, we published The Red Book, an annual report that aims to raise awareness of the real life impact of our current economic circumstances.

Red Book 2013 looks at the impact of the spending changes over the past year and highlights ways in which far more could be achieved for the funding available.
