We call on the chancellor to put children at the heart of the budget

In an open letter to Downing Street, more than 120 organisations have demanded that the Government recognise compelling evidence that the services and support that children and young people rely on are at breaking point.

The call comes from one of the broadest coalitions to assemble around such a cause, with representatives working across child health, education, social care, disability and poverty all signing the letter.

As the Chancellor prepares his 2018 budget, and with a spending review looming, signatories have insisted that urgent action must be taken to put children at the heart of Government spending plans. #ChildrenAtTheHeart
