Public affairs

Our public affairs work seeks to establish us as the authority on child health matters in Westminster. Using members' on-the-ground experience, we engage with Government, MPs, Peers, their staff, the civil service and wider stakeholders to make the case for policies that will improve children and young people's health outcomes.

How we influence

Ensuring decision-makers introduce the best public policy for children and young people is an important part of our work. Find out more about our approach to influencing.
