Today, the Government have released their Levelling Up White Paper.
Campbell Robb, Nacro chief executive, said: “We know tackling poverty and inequality is key to levelling up. For over 50 years Nacro has been embedded in communities helping some of our nation’s most vulnerable people through our housing, education, and justice services.
We see a huge amount of unmet need in our country. We need radical change to the systems that support people and significant funding to address this need, not just ambitions and slogans.
Until there is the right support, opportunity, and funding in place for everyone to succeed, regardless of the circumstances, we cannot truly claim to be levelling up.”
