On Tuesday 26th February there will be a drop-in event with Action for Children, Barnardo's, the Children's Society, the National Children's Bureau and NSPCC, from 12pm-2pm in Room W3 off Westminster Hall where they can receive tailored information about children's services in our area as well as the demand they are currently facing.
