We are the leading charity working on child poverty in the UK, and have over 50 years of experience and expertise. We build evidence on what causes poverty and the impact it has on children's lives, and then campaign for policies that will prevent and solve poverty - for good. 

What we're calling for

In these pages you'll find our briefings and reports on the causes, impacts and solutions to child poverty, and our campaigns that promote these solutions.
