Event description

Description

The average child poverty rate across the 32 local authorities in Scotland is 22%, and tackling child poverty is a priority area for the Scottish Government. This event will provide an opportunity for participants to systematically explore the evidence and issues surrounding actions to tackle child poverty. It will launch ‘Tackling child poverty: Actions to prevent and mitigate child poverty at the local level’ an accessible, action-oriented evidence review produced by What Works Scotland’s Evidence Bank.

Delegates will:

  • Hear findings and discuss the new evidence review from What Works Scotland: ‘Tackling child poverty: Actions to prevent and mitigate child poverty at the local level’
  • Hear about how Community Planning Partnerships have, and plan, to use the findings of the review in their work on preventing and mitigating child poverty
  • Explore and discuss work around Scotland aimed at tackling child poverty
  • Explore how the evidence and action at the local level relates to your own setting, and at the national level

Who should attend?

  • Senior managers and practitioners in health and social care, local authorities, and the third sector; community planning partnerships; civil servants; and other stakeholders working in partnerships to deliver public services
  • What Works Scotland national partners, learning partners, and case study partners
