End Child Poverty
The End Child Poverty coalition exists to hold the Government, and all main political parties, to account for their commitment to eradicate child poverty by 2020. With just 5 years to go until this deadline, it is now more important than ever for the coalition to have a clear platform of policy priorities from which to pursue this goal. With this in mind, this policy statement establishes the coalition’s policy priorities for the coming 3-year period.
