McCann welcomes launch of Action for Children report
Sinn Féin MLA and Junior Minister Jennifer McCann has welcomed the publication of a report by Action for Children on helping vulnerable young people manage money.
Speaking at the launch of the report, Jennifer McCann said:
“This is an important and useful report. Money management is a fundamental skill for life for everyone but particularly for vulnerable young people.
“I congratulate Action for Children as their report focused particularly on those who are most vulnerable or already living on a tight income.
“The Executive’s vision is that no child here is disadvantaged by poverty or deprivation.
“We are developing a new Strategy for Children and Young People which will consider the barriers they face in fully realising their rights and enjoying improved wellbeing.
“I would urge everyone to make their voices heard in the development of these important stages and thank Action for Children for their work on the report which will help remove barriers preventing young people from fulfilling their potential.”
