The 'Red Book': impact of UK government spending decisions on children, young people and families 2010/11
The ‘Red Book’ is the Government’s financial statement and budget report. It contains economic analysis and summarises the annual budget tax measures.
This annual publication will identify the impact of decisions made in the 2010 spending review on the lives of the most vulnerable and neglected children and young people. It is based on the views of the social care professionals working in Action for Children services. The economic literature review is provided by the Social Market Foundation.
It offers clear and evidence-based analysis and identifies specific actions the coalition government can undertake both now and in the longer term to ensure that unintended and serious consequences are identified and that their impacts can be mitigated.
