Every child should have an equal chance in life
The North East Child Poverty Commission aims to build public and political support for actions that improve the lives of children living in poverty in the North East.
Our members include senior representatives from over 30 public, private and voluntary sector organisations in the region.
We are not a charity and do not carry out general fundraising activities or appeals. We want you to help us and support our work, but we are not asking you for money.
The views of the Commission as a whole do not represent the views of any single member.
