Child of the North APPG
We provide the Secretariat for the Child of the North All-Party Parliamentary Group which is co-chaired by Emma Lewell-Buck MP and Mary Robinson MP. The group brings together key sector organisations and MPs from across the political spectrum. Our purpose is to create a fairer future for children across the North of England and to develop policy solutions that will tackle the stark inequalities across our region so we can enable the children of the North to fulfil their potential.
