Motion text

That this House supports Action for Children's campaign to highlight the importance of providing support to vulnerable six to 13 year olds; acknowledges the significance of the years of middle childhood as a key time in a child's development; recognises that all children need at least one trusted adult who is there for them for as long as it takes, especially at times of transition; calls for a cross-party 21-year vision for children and young people to be established in each nation of the UK, describing both how public services and public bodies which influence or regulate the commercial sector will work together to ensure children receive the support they need at all key stages and transitions in their lives; further calls for agencies and professionals working with children and families to do more to recognise and safeguard the vital role of continuity, commitment and relationships built on trust in children's lives; and further calls on governments and media across the UK to begin a responsible debate on the way our young people are perceived and highlight young people's contribution to communities.
