Asset Building for Children

On September 9th, 2010 ResPublica's Children and Families Unit launched its latest report Asset Building for Children – Creating a new civic savings platform for young people, which is supported by the Save Child Savings Alliance, has been drawn up by ResPublica's Director Phillip Blond, and Sandra Gruescu, Head of the Children and Family Unit. It aims to revive Britain's savings culture by proposing radical measures to free Britain’s poor from the “debt serfdom” that has engulfed them in recent years. The authors were joined at the launch by Professor Julian Le Grand of the LSE, David White, Chief Executive of the Children's Mutual at a panel event chaired by The Guardian's Zoe Williams.
