Pauline campaigns in aid of the children

THE MP for Belper wants to ‘Give Children the Best Chance in Life’.

Pauline Latham has thrown her support behinda campaign by the Save the Children charity.

Mrs Latham met with charity representatives and discussed how to give children the best possible life, at home and abroad.

Mrs Latham said: “There is still a huge divide between how well children living in poverty do at school compared to their wealthier peers. This gap in education achievement is already evident by the time children reach 19 months and generally continues to widen throughout a child’s time at school.

“As politicians, we must seek to address the often stubborn equalities of outcomes for young people.”
