Party Leaders, don't let children be forgotten this election! 

Dear Party Leaders,

At Action for Children, we believe that every child who needs help should get help. In the past 3 weeks, thousands of people have agreed with us that the issues affecting children and young people need to be on the political agenda of every party.

And yet, because of all the debate and discussion around leaving the EU in this election, children and young people are at risk of being forgotten. In today’s society, we believe it’s unacceptable that:

1. Children are not getting the care they need because children's services are not able to cope with increasing demand

2. The gap in development of children from poorer backgrounds and their better-off peers is increasing

3. Unprecedented levels of children and young people are struggling with their mental health without support

That's why we're asking you,as party leader to put the issues affecting children and young people on the political agenda of your party.
