We collect evidence from families living in poverty and campaign for solutions to bring about a society where children have a fair chance in life free from hardship. We provide training, advice and information on social security to frontline workers to make sure families get the financial support they need.

CPAG project work in Scotland
Some of our projects are across the UK, with specific work going on in Scotland.
Other projects are unique to Scotland. We're currently undertaking a research project into Scottish child payment, best start grants and best start foods. The project is running from December 2023 to December 2025, with funding from the Robertson Trust.
