Children & young people network meeting

Philanthropy and the state: what is our role as foundations in ensuring the safety and happiness of children and young people?



Bel Crewe, BBC Children in Need
Steph Taylor, Leeds Community Foundation




 Paul Lidell, National Officer, BBC Children in Need 

This session will explore the respective roles of foundations and the state in working with vulnerable children and young people. We will hear from the Home Office on the implications of the spending review and their current priorities in terms of vulnerable children and young people and create space to discuss how we see our role in relation to this.

We will also hear from funders and young people whose work is centred on play and early intervention as areas distinct from government funded activity to hear their views on the question.
