Humankind has signed a joint letter to the the Chancellor of the Exchequer calling to reinstate funding to support children affected by parental alcohol use.
The Chancellor of the Exchequer, Jeremy Hunt MP, will deliver his Spring Budget in Parliament on Wednesday 15 March.
Through the Alcohol and Families Alliance, of which Humankind is a member, Humankind signed a joint letter to the Chancellor at the beginning of March calling for him to reinstate funding to support children of alcohol dependent parents.
The Alcohol and Families Alliance is a collaboration of over 40 organisations that is united in reducing the harms experienced by families through alcohol.
Established in 2018, the Children of Alcohol Dependent Parents grant enabled ground-breaking work to take place, benefitting many children of alcohol dependent parents by allowing them and their parents to turn their lives around.
Reinstating this grant will provide children affected by parental alcohol use with access to the support they need and ensure that they are not forgotten, or neglected, but empowered to enjoy healthy and secure childhoods.
