Vicky Ford – 2021 Comments on Mental Health Funding in Schools

The comments made by Vicky Ford, the Children and Families Minister, on 10 May 2021.

The past year has been incredibly difficult for so many children and young people whose resilience in the face of so much change has been heroic . Staff have been working so hard to support their pupils so I’m thrilled to be able to reassure them that we’re increasing funding, specialist support and training materials for expert care – building on the success of Wellbeing for Education Return and ensuring that the help is there for the children who need it.
