All Our Children

Thursday, August 14, 2014

Home-Start Sheffield is joining the Home-Start network in calling for all political parties to put children’s lives at the heart of policy, through the launch of its All Our Children manifesto. Launched at a Westminster event the manifesto has been shaped by the views of Home-Start’s supported families, staff and volunteers.

Home-Start Sheffield works with vulnerable parents and children who are socially excluded, living in isolation or facing multiple problems. These can include changes in circumstances, unreliable employment and gaps in benefit payments, poor physical and mental health and housing problems. These can all push families into crisis and when this happens, children suffer.

We want all our children to grow up with:

        Safe places to live and play,

        Support when their parents suffer from a mental illness, and

        Protection from hunger and poor nutrition.

 

Meg, who is Patron of Sheffield Home-Start, said:

“I’m really pleased to support the All Our Children manifesto. From my work as a local Sheffield MP, and as Chair of the Child Protection All-Party Parliamentary Group, I know how important it is to provide safe places to live and play and support for parents who suffer from a mental illness. I also know that across Sheffield, many families are struggling financially and have to rely on food banks to feed their children.

Organisations like Home-Start Sheffield provide vital support to local families that are struggling and so I’m pleased to see this manifesto launched. All our children need the right support.”

Jack Scott, Chief Executive explains:

“These really are basic needs but many children are not getting the support they deserve. Home-Start’s manifesto shows why this is crucial and how we can all make it happen. With more than 40 years supporting families, Home-Start knows that small steps are often the most lasting. 

What we are proposing will make a real, immediate difference to the lives of children. The practical solutions offered in this manifesto will enable local people to support vulnerable families more effectively.”
