Dear Prime Minister,

As you negotiate a deal for the future of Britain, we urge you to keep in mind that the future relies on the support we provide our children and young people.

In your party’s manifesto you committed to giving every child “the best possible start in life.” We share this ambition. But there’s a long way to go to achieve this.

For example, it is wrong that in today’s society, children’s services are not able to cope with increasing demand, there are gaps in mental health service provision and half of 5 year olds from poorer backgrounds are not reaching expected development levels.

That is why we urge you to put the needs of disadvantaged children at the centre of your Government’s agenda.

Thank you,

Best wishes,

Action for Children
