A new podcast ParentPod has been launched (by myself Sophie Mei Lan and Amy Downes of A Mum Full of Dreams) to tackle issues important to families.

We kick off by deciphering the General Election with parliamentary candidates (former MPs hoping to be re-elected) Mary Creagh for Labour and Andrea Jenkyns for the Conservatives.

I don’t know about you but I’m not one for politics normally, however our votes do matter because our families future is at stake.

So what did mums Mary and Andrea think mattered most for families?

Vote Labour
Mary Creagh was concerned families will loose around £500 per year under a Tory government with school funding cuts such as loosing universal free school meals.
If Labour gets into power Mary’s first priority would be to put more money into the NHS.

Meanwhile new mum Andrea Jenkyns said that the economy had to play priority in order to be able to fund vital services such as childcare.
