Norfolk is a great place to live and grow-up but all children and young people do not benefit equally from what Norfolk has to offer. We will tackle that inequality of opportunity. Children and young people have had their social lives, family lives and education disrupted during the pandemic and it will need our collective effort to help them thrive and reach their potential. Children and young people have borne the brunt of Tory cuts over the last ten years, and we commit to reversing this damage.
This manifesto is based on the experiences of young people and listening to what they are saying they need. We will keep the voice of children and young people at the heart of every decision that we make. Our promises to the children and young people of Norfolk are underpinned by the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (here Child rights and why they matter | UNICEF).
