Policy and campaigns

As a leading charity working on child poverty in the UK, we provide high quality evidence to policy-makers on the causes, impacts and solutions to child poverty.

Drawing on our 50 years of experience and expertise, we devise and promote solutions we know will lift children and families out of poverty. We work with partners across the sector to advocate for and implement innovative solutions to child poverty.

Join us to make the case for the solutions that will prevent and end child poverty: adequate wages and benefits, affordable childcare and housing and decent jobs to raise a family on.
