Responding to DCSF's consultation ‘Ending Child Poverty: Making it Happen’

We've responded to DCSF's consultation ‘Ending Child Poverty: Making it Happen’ on legislative proposals prior to the introduction of a child poverty Bill in 2009.


The Government wants to provide children and young people with the best start in life and break cycles of deprivation for good. The Government's ambitious pledge in 1999 to end child poverty by 2020 has already led to 600,000 fewer children in poverty in the UK. While good progress has been made, 2.9 million children remain in poverty.


We're highlighting some of the rural issues surrounding child poverty in our response to the consultation.
