Bridget visits UNICEF UK
Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Campaigner Bridget Fox visited UNICEF today to hear about their campaign to make the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child part of UK law. The UK agreed with the United Nations on the document, which promises a better life for every child, but has yet to make it legislation, where it could really make a difference for children and young people in the UK.
Bridget Fox said:
“I was very interested to learn about UNICEF’s Manifesto for Children and fully support the Put it Right campaign.
“The government pledged to end child poverty by 2020, but did not invest enough in this when the economy was stable. Now in harder times we need to ensure that children from low income families are not losing out.”
