Policy Seminar for Local Leads

July 2018

On the 25th June 2018 Child Poverty Action Group (CPAG) in Scotland hosted a policy seminar for local child poverty leads bringing together representatives from nineteen local authorities and six health boards as well as the Scottish Government, COSLA, SPIRU (Scottish Poverty and Inequality Research Unit), NHS Health Scotland and the Improvement Service.

The objective of the seminar was to discuss the duties placed on local authorities and health boards by the Child Poverty (Scotland) Act 2017 and in particular the duty on each local authority area to produce Local Child Poverty Action Reports (LCPARS).

The report is available here.
