The Child Poverty Strategy

Date published: 25 March 2016

The Executive’s Child Poverty Strategy, published in March 2016, sets out the vision to eradicate child poverty in the future.  The aims of the strategy are to: reduce the number of children in poverty; and reduce the impact living in poverty on children (their lives and life chances).   The Strategy sets out our goals to ensure programmes and policies provide extra support for children in poverty, improve outcomes for children in low-income families and take children out of poverty. This Strategy represents the Executive’s revised Strategy as required by Section 12(3) of the Life Chances Act.
