On 7 March 2017, the Government supported amendments tabled by the Shadow Children's Minister, Emma Lewell-Buck MP, to delete the clauses in the Children and Social Work Bill that gravely threatened children's legal protection. By that time, 53 organisations were opposing the clauses through the Together for Children campaign (see here: https://togetherforchildren.wordpress.com).
THANK YOU for all of your support. This campaign success shows the power of standing together to protect the rights of vulnerable children and young people.
