We want to see actions from the ‘Children and Young People’s Strategy’ (2019-29) met to ensure all children have the best start to life.

Less pressure on adult services, a happier, healthier and productive workforce and improvements in health and wellbeing are dividends we can enjoy by ensuring child health is always a priority.
