Letter from the NCB:
#GiveUsAChancellor – Giving children and young people a voice in the ‘Comprehensive Spending Review’
TACTYC are supporting this important initiative and hope you will get involved – thank you!
Thank you for the amazing support for #GiveUsAChancellor so far. It is fantastic that we are able to come together as a sector to promote children, young people and parent voices.
So far, children and young people signing the letter have asked for money to be allocated to mental health and wellbeing support, supporting society’s most vulnerable children, and tackling child poverty.
It’s not too late to get involved to make sure we reach as many children, young people and parents as possible so they can have their say on what the Government should be spending money on. You can support the young people leading this campaign by:
- Sharing the letter with children, young people and parents of very young children either directly or through the organisations that work with them. This can be done through newsletters, online forums, and young people-facing social media accounts such as Instagram. The resource pack includes example copy, a video, graphics, a template letter to MPs, and key information for organisations.
- Signing your organisation up as a ‘supporter of the campaign’ – a list of supporting organisations will be submitted to the Treasury, alongside the letter. If you haven’t done so already, please email me by 22 September to confirm that your organisation would like to sign up.
- Joining the conversation on social media on 24 September, calling on the Chancellor to listen to what children and young people have said. Where possible, organisations are encouraged to prepare quotes/videos/graphics that promote children, young people and parent voices on what they want Government to prioritise in the Spending Review and why they think Government should listen. We will circulate further information in due course.We ask that each organisation participating in this activity ensures they have suitable safeguarding practices and policies in place to ensure that children and parents feel protected and supported when participating.
Please get in touch if you have any questions.
