Join the fightback for children

In May's elections, millions are going to the polls in England and Wales. Find out where you can vote on Thursday 6 May with this tool from Democracy Club. 

These are no ordinary elections. The pandemic has meant that children have missed out on months of learning, families have seen uncertainty over jobs and incomes fall, and our most vulnerable children have been out of the view of the professionals and services designed to keep them safe.

We asked our supporters to contact their local candidates, calling on them to make a meaningful commitment to children and young people. Over 500 election candidates have now pledged to #JoinTheFightback for children. ***The action for supporters is now closed, as elections are underwaybut successful candidates can continue to register their support.***
