Best Beginnings is delighted to announce that we as a charity are supporting 4Children with their Fair4Families campaign launched on the 29th January 2013.  The campaign aims to put the needs of children and families on the political and policy agenda by calling on the Chancellor to recognise families as assets to society and requesting that families be put at the top of the agenda in this year’s Comprehensive Spending Review.

The Fair4Families campaign demands specifically that the Comprehensive Spending Review:


  • Recognises families are assets that can contribute to our economic and social recovery with the right support. Including:


- An ambitious vision of support for families, including childcare, so that more parents can contribute to economic growth.
- Greater investment in housing to give more people the chance to realise their dream of a home fit for a family.
- A real shift in spending from ineffective late intervention to early intervention.
- A credible strategy to begin to eradicate child poverty.


  • Protecting crucial services for families with children from further spending reductions for the spending review period. 


  • No further spending reductions sought through real term cuts to benefits paid to families with children.
