Meg supports investment in children

Friday, March 20, 2009

Heeley MP Meg Munn has given her support to Action for Children’s call to invest in services that improve the happiness and well-being of children. Meg attended their recent Parliamentary reception to mark the launch of ‘Happiness Counts’, a major research project from Action for Children and the centre for well-being at nef (the new economics foundation) that aims to reshape the way we invest in the future of society.

 

The occasion gave politicians from all political parties the chance to hear how ‘Happiness Counts’ will provide evidence that investing in services that develop happiness and well-being in children can bring social and economic benefits for all.  The research project will consult with children across the country to gather their views on the types of services that they would like to see in their communities for children and young people.

 

Meg said:

 

“I was pleased to support the launch of ‘Happiness Counts’. It’s vital that we intervene to do what we can to prevent serious problems developing in children’s lives. I think it’s great that children are being consulted in this project, and I look forward to seeing its results.”  

 

Clare Tickell, Action for Children’s Chief Executive, said:

 

“We’re grateful to Meg for showing her support for ‘Happiness Counts’. It’s so critical that our knowledge of the benefits of early intervention is translated into policy to deliver real change that will benefit society at large. I’m pleased that Meg shares our recognition that listening to what children have to tell us is key to us truly succeeding in reshaping the way we invest in the future of our society.”
