Matt Hancock MP has become the 550th MP to give his support to the 70/30 Campaign.

WAVE are delighted to welcome Mr Hancock's endorsement following a meeting with Alex Williamson, WAVE Trust’s 70/30 Campaign Officer.

Mr Hancock said: "I have long supported the work of the brilliant WAVE Trust and recognise how important their goals are. As Health Secretary, I supported the Early Years Agenda and I am incredibly proud of what we achieved together, but our work is not done.

"I will continue to support the WAVE Trust and their 70/30 campaign because every child deserves the best possible start in life."

Alex Williamson said: To have reached the support of 550 Members of Parliament for our work is truly overwhelming and I would like to thank each and every Member of Parliament who has publicly supported the very vital work we are doing to not only raise awareness of the transgenerational damage that unresolved childhood trauma can cause, but also to give their full support to our call for preventive lead policy in this area.

"It is my hope that, over the next year, we can reach a position whereby all 650 Members of Parliament fully behind our aims and objectives."
