David Gandy, Achievement for All Ambassador and Host of the 2017 Celebrating Every Child Awards, said: “One in five children across the UK do not achieve expected outcomes irrespective of the area they come from or their background. This means that thousands of children face barriers that limit their life chances and these can have life-long impacts on job prospects, health and wellbeing.
