“We’re launching a once in a generation “Beveridge Report for children” with an ambitious call to rebuild childhood after the Covid-19 pandemic.”
Dame Rachel de Souza, Children’s Commissioner for England, is today (Tuesday) launching a once-in-a-generation review of the future of childhood by the Children’s Commissioner’s Office. ‘The Childhood Commission’ will be inspired by the ambition of William Beveridge’s pioneering 1940s report, which laid the foundations of the post-War social security system. ‘The Childhood Commission’ will identify the barriers preventing children from reaching their full potential, propose policy and services solutions and develop targets by which improvements can be monitored.
