Policy and Advocacy

Children across the UK are facing some of the toughest starts in life; from school exclusion to poverty and from anxiety to inequality, to name just a few of the challenges.

We believe change is possible and that's why in all our work lies an unchanging resolve to transform lives for good.

As well as supporting families in communities across the UK, we want to play our part in bringing about lasting change on a national level.

Using TLG’s expansive knowledge and frontline experience, our Policy Team work to raise awareness, build relationships and bring forward practical policy recommendations to tackle the challenges facing children and families.
