Tulip Siddiq responds to analysis from leading charities highlighting funding crisis in children’s services

Tulip Siddiq MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Children and Early Years, commenting on new analysis from leading charities showing a funding crisis in children’s services, said:

“Ten years of cuts have left children’s services unable to cope with the pressures of Covid-19 and many young people are struggling to access the support they need.

“This report shows that it is deprived areas that have been hit hardest by Tory policies over the last decade.

“You can’t improve life chances for children without strong local services.”
