We have therefore decided to bring forward the launch of our joint statement and social media action to tomorrow 00.01 (Tuesday 30 June) in order to coincide with this speech. We have not taken this decision lightly but we believe that aligning with the news agenda is of paramount importance.

The statement and accompanying press release can be found in the social media pack. This is embargoed until Tuesday 30 June at 00.01.

Thank you so much for joining the activity calling on Government to put children at the heart of COVID-19 recovery. Please see below information for the activity planned on Tuesday 30 June.

The social media pack can be downloaded here. We will be sending further content as soon as possible (more info below).

  • If you would like to upload the statement to your website, the social media pack includes some suggested website copy. Alternatively, you can link to the statement here: www.ncb.org.uk/childrenattheheartofrecovery.
  • Each organisation is encouraged to undertake activity promoting the statement across their social channels on 30 June using #ChildrenAtTheHeart and #PowerOfYouth. Sample social media content and a few graphics are in the pack to use, if you wish.
  • Where possible, we encourage organisations to live tweet or respond to the Prime Minister’s speech on 30 June and the Chancellor’s speech next week, linking back to the campaign.
