iHV very much welcomes the NCB’s clear analysis and recommendations published in its report “Whatever it takes”: Government spending on children and young people – the impact of the coronavirus pandemic and the 2020 Spending Review.
Dr Cheryll Adams CBE, Executive Director iHV, commented:
“This NCB Report is a superb and clear analysis of the crises for children at the moment and, amongst other recommendations, it recommends investing in the early years and health visiting.”
“We hope that many interested parliamentarians and others will take the opportunity to attend the APPG for Children taking place this afternoon to discuss its contents.”
Parliamentarians will be debating the implications of this analysis at 4:30-6pm on Monday 14 December at a meeting of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Children. Children, young people and parents who participated in the #GiveUsAChancellor campaign will also be presenting on the areas where they want to see future government spending.
