Commenting, Stephanie said:

“Children’s services have been gutted by cuts under this Government, and it’s young people in places like Barnsley that have felt the effects.

“At the start of her premiership, Theresa May talked about tackling ‘burning injustices’, and now at the end she has the opportunity to do just that.

“Alongside colleagues up and down the country we called on the Prime Minister to take action before it’s too late, and make sure young people in Barnsley don’t pay the price of Tory austerity for any longer”
