About this event

Too many children are growing up in poverty in the UK. In a new guide from Child Poverty Action Group, Ending Child Poverty: Why and How, Kitty Stewart, Jane Millar, Alan Marsh and Jonathan Bradshaw set out the evidence on the extent of child poverty and its impact on children – their day-to-day lives and their future opportunities. In this seminar Kitty Stewart will present findings from the report while CPAG Chief Executive Alison Garnham will set out key policy solutions. In this important election year, we will then hear from Alison McGovern MP and there will be the opportunity to explore what the policy response of any future government should be with Q&As.
