Valley MP in child campaign.

A LOCAL MP backed calls for more to be done to protect children.

Calder Valley MP, Chris McCafferty (pictured above) , has added her name to the NSPCC's campaign calling for child protection to be a priority in the wake of a series of tragic child abuse deaths.

She backed the NSPCC's new campaign which calls for vital child protection reforms alongside continued funding of Childline and the NSPCC Helpline.

She said: "We must ensure that vital child protection reforms take place. In this difficult economic climate, protecting children must remain our priority if we are to prevent more children suffering from violence, sexual abuse, neglect, and emotional harm, and to support those who have already been abused."
