Cat Smith responds to Children Society report

Cat Smith MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Young People, responding to the Children’s Society ‘Good Childhood’ Report, said:

“This eye-opening report lays bare the stark pressures and difficulties faced by young people in the UK, compared to those in other European countries.

“Young people and children have been left behind since long before the Coronavirus crisis. With children in the UK ranking lowest for life satisfaction across Europe, the Government remain utterly out-of-touch with the real struggles faced by young people. 

“The Government must finally provide a comprehensive measurement of children’s well-being in order to properly quantify changes and target resources.”
