Millions of families have seen their lives upturned by coronavirus and council-run emergency funds should be there to help parents in difficulty provide the essentials for their children.

Thanks to our supporters, funding has been extended until 20 June, but there are still no long term financial plans in place.

Councils face unprecedented pressure in the wake of the pandemic. Without support, many schemes will close cutting the safety net for families in crisis.

Help us turn this around – sign and share our petition to fund and fix local crisis support for the long term.
