It’s just a couple of short days until we head to the polls for the General Election. While we may have many views when it comes to political persuasion, one area many of us overlap is a belief that children, families and young people matter.
Premier Youth and Children’s Work Magazine have pulled together their Manifesto for Children and Young People in the face of this upcoming election.
Meanwhile the National Children’s Bureau have provided this summary of what the different manifestos offer Children.
And Children England have drawn together a range of charities working with Children across England to say what they think should be in a manifesto for children.
What do you think? What might you add? Or change?
You could consider sparking some conversations with the children, families and young people you work with around what’s important to them.
And whatever the result of the polls, political engagement doesn’t stop as the polls close. Why not think together about how you can continue to work together with the children, families and young people you minister to, to hold whatever government we end up with to account?
Here’s an article from Premier Youth and Childrenswork Magazine to help you think about how you could do just that.
