Meg Munn MP supports NSPCC campaign on child abuse deaths

Tuesday, October 8, 2002

Last week at the Labour party conference, Meg Munn MP joined and NSPCC Chief Executive, Mary Marsh at the NSPCC stand.

The NSPCC stand was designed to highlight the current phase of the Full Stop campaign - which is calling on the Government to reform the child protection system to help end child abuse deaths.

Meg Munn Labour and Co-operative MP for Sheffield Heeley qualified as a social worker in 1986 and became the Assistant Director of Children’s Services on the City of York Council until November 2000.

Meg, who has been campaigning for a change in the law to prevent the trafficking of children into the UK, said

“As a long-time professional in children’s services, I visited the NSPCC stand because I believe their campaign to prevent child abuse deaths is very important. 

We must all play a role in ensuring that children at risk are given the help and protection they deserve. My colleague, Health Minister Jacqui Smith, says that the report of the Climbie Inquiry will help us to make the changes necessary to provide better protection for vulnerable children in the future.

We already know that services need to be better co-ordinated, so we are developing “Children’s Trusts’ which will bring together those involved in the care of children. This will provide an opportunity for local government to join-up services better, to show they can deliver for children and to link in more closely with health.

We want to put children’s needs rather than agency boundaries at the centre of policy.”

 NSPCC Chief Executive Mary Marsh said:

“We welcome Meg Munn MP’s support for our campaign.  Every week one to two children are killed in the UK - the majority by their parents or carers.  We must have stronger, more accountable child protection arrangements to ensure children are better safeguarded.”
