This analysis gives an overview of Budget 2016 and its impact on children. Overall, there are a number of welcome measures that will have a positive impact on families with children, particularly those with young children. In particular, we welcome the extension of the free pre-school year to children upon reaching three years of age, the extension of free GP care for all children under 12 years, and the introduction of two weeks’ paid paternity leave.
