A central aim of the levelling up agenda is to address the unacceptable fact that, to a large extent, children's life chances are determined by where in the UK they grow up, and the Levelling Up White Paper confirmed the importance placed by the Government on early intervention. The Government has announced a £1 billion package to support vulnerable families, including funding for Family Hubs, investment in the Holiday, Activity, and Food programme and funding so that the Supporting Families programme can work with up to 300,000 more families.
