Putting children and young people at the heart of the recovery
The COVID-19 pandemic was rightly characterised by a national effort to protect the health of the most vulnerable, but also brought with it unprecedented disruption to livelihoods and routines. ‘Work from home’ became the norm, and schools across the country closed to reduce transmission. Adapting to these changes has been especially difficult for children and young people, with fewer social interactions, lost learning, and additional pressures on their mental health.

Now, as we turn to recovery, there is immense potential to rethink how the Government can support the most disadvantaged, and ‘level up’ opportunities for young people. The recent budget and spending review was a welcome first step, promising £1.8 billion of new money for catch-up teaching and further investment in Family Hubs and early intervention. However, we owe it to children and young people to go much further — by placing them front and centre of the recovery.

Reform is delighted to be hosting a panel discussion on this important and timely subject. Confirmed panellists include Will Quince MP, Minister for Children and Families, Anne Longfield CBE, Chair of the Commission on Young Lives and Rachel Sylvester, Chair of the Times Education Commission
