An ambitious plan can end child poverty
New figures reveal that even before the pandemic child poverty was continuing to rise across the UK – with the North East and our cities hardest hit. Find out the rate of child poverty in your area.
Every day members of the End Child Poverty coalition see the impact of poverty on families and children. We need the Government to put a protective arm around this generation of children. The Government needs a plan to end child poverty, which includes increasing children’s benefits. And they must not cut family budgets by £20 in the autumn and must extend the UC uplift to those on legacy benefits.
We all want to live in a society where children are supported to be the best they can be, but the reality is very different for too many. The Government owes it to our children to come up with a plan to tackle child poverty.
