Proud to stand up for children

I was pleased today to be able to sign up to the NSPCCs pledge for candidates at the general election. This signs me up to:

  • A better resourced child protection system and ensuring it is protected from cuts.
  • Better protection for children living with domestic violence.
  • More therapeutic services for children who have experienced abuse.
  • Continued government funding of helplines for children and for adults concerned about a child.
I am passionate that we need to do more for child protection, especially for those who have suffered from abuse. I think there are a lot of innovative approaches being developed by the NSPCC and others.
