The goal of the Campaign to End Child Poverty is simple - to eradicate child poverty in the UK - and our aims are clear.
Action is needed now.
Together with all our supporters, we are demanding the Government invests the necessary resources and policy changes to deliver on its promise to all children to eradicate child poverty in the UK by 2020.
We believe that informed public debate about the facts and implications of child poverty in the UK will lead to better social policies and help all levels of government meet their stated commitments to end child poverty. It will also help focus the attention of all major political parties on the issue.
Through our members we work with Government ministers, civil servants and others to help advise them on strategies to end child poverty and on the implementation of their public policy commitments in a practical and timely fashion, and in a manner consistent with our aims.
We respond to the requests of various groups in the community, including local authorities, to speak at events and become more actively involved in helping to increase public awareness about child poverty in the UK.
