Strengthening financial security to end child poverty

Even before the pandemic hit, child poverty rates were high in Scotland and projected to rise further. Welcome steps have been taken to support families, but significant pressures remain. This panel event will focus on the progress that has been made so far in Scotland and actions that will need to be taken over the next five years - and beyond - to meet the interim child poverty targets and strengthen financial security for families with children.
