This video features highlights from our work in 2020.
While it was an incredibly challenging year, we:
- won financial support for bereaved children and secured £63 million for local welfare assistance in England;
- produced video resources for schools in Scotland on cutting cost barriers for children, and digital resources on debt advice for everyone; and we
- got more support for parents in Wales and saved free travel for young people in London.
Of course many of the challenges families face have continued into 2021, but we are looking ahead with hope and ambition. We can come out of this pandemic with a shared vision of how our social security system can and should support us all through difficult times. And we can build support for a strategy that ends child poverty once and for all, so that all children can enjoy a childhood free of financial hardship and have an equal chance in life to reach their full potential.
