Using COVID-19 funding to tackle child poverty: Guidance for local councils in England

11 January 2021
This guidance aims to support local authorities to consider how any additional funding received to support households struggling during the crisis can best help tackle child poverty, and to spark ideas or stimulate interest in developing new approaches in your local authority area. This may include how to spend unallocated money from the COVID Winter Grant Scheme, but also how support to families is being provided, or could be provided by your local council, outside the remit of this grant.
