Anna has welcomed the announcements by the Chancellor today in the Autumn Statement. The Chancellor has shown that he is delivering on the promises the Conservatives made to the British people that economic security would be made a priority.
As our our prayers go out the the French people following the horrific terrorist attack on Friday 13th November, we are starkly reminded that the fight against ISIL and jihadist extremism is not just in Syria and Iraq, but right here in Europe too.
Anna Firth joins the panel at a conference to discuss ‘Who Cares About the Family?’ in Parliament. The event, organised by campaign group Mothers at Home Matter was held on 27th January and focused on the economics of family life and the dilemmas faced by modern UK families.
I believe that when Mothers speak, the voices of children are heard. And it’s not just children but older relatives too that need support from their own families. Policies must be balanced to support every choice not just focus on supporting more outsourced care. More families are pressed for family time and find it hard to focus on relationships in an ever-busier world with so many different stresses and strains.
