Labour responds to report from the Children’s Services Funding Alliance

Tulip Siddiq MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Children and Early Years, responding to a new report on funding from the Children’s Services Funding Alliance, said:

“The Conservatives have spent the last decade stripping away support for vulnerable children, which has allowed problems to escalate into crises.

“The pandemic has exposed this false economy, leaving thousands of young people at risk of harm and neglect.

“We need a clear plan to rebuild children’s services after this pandemic. Labour has committed to putting children at the heart of our pandemic recovery. It’s time the Conservatives match this ambition for every child.”
