this is really important IMHO

exactly the sort of thing mumsnet should be campaigning about

why oh why does the gov think it is a good thing to stitch up little children and teach them the value of not saving

even when they are too youg the learn the lesson

Oh caught out again! Pity - but presumably it hasn't done any good?

Old thread, petition is now closed?

Signed - especially relevant for those that invested their own money in the CTF (not just the gov freebie) and now no hope of them performing as expected.

there aren't many signatures - maybe you can repost this somewhere more prominent - maybe in chat.

Must be relevant to anyone with kids old enough to have CTFs.

We have 3DC with underperforming CTF. Our youngest is only 2.7! Our eldest's is worth less than the initial payment now, and doesn't stand a chance of being worth anything if it stays as a CTF.

Signed.

We have one child with a Child Trust Fund (unfortunately not performing well) & our latest has a Junior ISA. We would like to be able to transfer the funds from the Child Trust Fund into a Junior ISA for our first child but at present this is not allowed. We have set up a Govt petition to try & get this changed, anyone willing to add their signature would be much appreciated!
