CAn you please explain what is happening with The Childrens’ Charter? I understand that it is being used ‘for another piece of work’. Well that is not acceptable. My son, and many other children I am sure, pushed himself to speak to an assembly of parents and children to get over 100 signatures. To be told that it is being shelved?!!

You cannot use this ‘for another piece of work’. Those signatures were asked for and given in good faith. You should return them if they are not to be used.

More importantly how on earth do you expect to have a good relationship with children with Type 1 when you let them down like this?

I know it wasn’t going to bring in any money, so not a priority, but I find it deceitful to start a campaign encouraging children to put their head above the parapets and then disregard it.
