CHILD POVERTY


boy in window 300


On February 27th 2014, the Government launched a consultation on its Child Poverty Strategy. A review of evidence of the drivers of child poverty for families in poverty now and for poor children growing up to be poor adults, shows that the most significant factor for the former, is lack of sufficient income from parental employment and, for the latter, the main driver is poor child educational outcomes.

However, this only focuses on a financial measure.

In this Deeper Look section, we look at the evidence, based on surveys of more than four million children and youth from all backgrounds and situations,about a set of skills, experiences, relationships, and behaviours that enable young people to develop into successful and contributing adults.
