What more can be done within existing powers to tackle child poverty?

This programme paper provides an overview of devolved strategies to tackle child poverty in the UK, building on existing work assessing the impact of devolution for low-income people and places.

It is part of JRF’s anti-poverty programme, which seeks to produce an evidence-based strategy to reduce poverty across all age groups and each nation in the UK.

This paper:

  • builds on JRF’s earlier work assessing the impact of devolution for low-income people and places;
  • offers a summary of how the devolved administrations are implementing their respective child poverty strategy commitments; and
  • is based mainly on the accounts given in annual child poverty reports published to date.
