Save the Children welcomes Labour's ambition to break down barriers for children
LONDON, 6 JULY - Becca Lyon, head of child poverty at Save the Children, said: “We welcome Labour’s ambition to break down barriers for children. Tackling child poverty must be a key part of this.
“We agree that a child's background shouldn't define them. Labour is right to recognise how important a child's earliest years are in shaping their future, and that the role of early years education and childcare is fundamental to this.
"We now need to see a clear commitment to a cross-departmental child poverty strategy – including scrapping the unfair two child limit - to give all children and young people the hope and opportunity they deserve.”
