This briefing is designed to support organisations with an interest in child poverty to respond to the Work and Pensions Committee inquiry on children in poverty: measurement and targets. The deadline for responses to this inquiry is 25 February.
This briefing is structured around some of the questions being asked by the Committee, and provides a summary of the policy background, CPAG’s view on some of the key issues of interest to the Committee, and some relevant research and evidence that may be helpful when drafting your response. This briefing draws on the CPAG publication 2020 Vision: ending child poverty for good. This book provides further information on child poverty measurements and targets that you may find useful.
