Responding to reports that local charity ‘Kids Company’ may close, Harriet Harman MP for Camberwell and Peckham today said:
“Kids Company work with some of the most deprived and vulnerable children and young people in South London, and in other parts of the country.
“Whatever happens to Kids Company, these children and young people must be protected and supported. Such vulnerable young people must not suffer as result of the breakdown of government confidence in Kids Company.
“The Government must ensure that local authorities and voluntary organisations have the resources they need to make sure that the children and young people who are being supported by Kids Company will not be without that support if the charity closes.
“The Government must publish a full report showing what funding decisions they have made in regard to Kids Company, and on what basis”.
