It was a real honour to join colleagues on 7th September 2022 at Westminster for the launch of 4 new reports; ‘The Early Years,’ ‘Physical Health,’ Mental Health’ and ‘Family and Community’ from our colleagues at the Children’s Alliance
The reception was hosted by Southend West MP Anna Firth to bring together representatives from business, the voluntary sector and academia in Westminster’s Terrace Pavilion to call for the appointment of a Cabinet Minister for Children and Young People.
‘My distinguished predecessor Sir David Amess had agreed to host this event initially and did much to bring the excellent work of Children’s Alliance to the attention of our Parliamentary and Ministerial colleagues. I am so sad that he cannot celebrate the publication of the policy quartet with us today but know that his wonderful work with and for children and young people everywhere is a legacy that we will always honour in his name at Westminster – the seat of our democracy and the guardian of equality and justice for all.’
