What Works Locally to tackle Child Poverty.docxWe want to put together a good response to the Government's consultation questions about 'What works locally?' in tackling Child Poverty.  We want to showcase the good work being done with very limited resources in the region.  

We know that local action alone cannot address the scale of the problem.  We know that Government policy is making child poverty worse at the moment.  We know that more needs to be done nationally, and that local action is hamstrung by budget cuts.  But that needn't stop us from showing all the good work that is happening - and at the same time, illustrating the problems that families in poverty are facing.

To help do this, we have produced a simple questionnaire template.  You can download a Word document below
