Next UK government should help families flourish, says Cardinal

Support for families should be a prime concern of voters in the upcoming UK election according to the Head of the Archbishop of Westminster.

Cardinal Vincent Nichols, has recorded a message encouraging Catholics, particularly young adults, to get involved and vote.

“I would like to put forward a theme for us all to think about. How do we seek to construct a society in which families can flourish? That’s the bedrock – many positive things flow from that,” he said.

In his message, Cardinal Nichols signposts resources that offer guidance on seven key topics of interest to Catholics.

“I ask you to look at these resources, explore them, become a bit more familiar with them so that when it comes to 4 July, you’ve got in your mind what you want to see the next government strive to achieve,” says Cardinal Nichols.

“My view is that our next government should strive to create the circumstances in which families can flourish. So please get ready to vote on 4 July.”
