Event Details

Join us for an evening of high profile discussion and debate, centred around the experiences of young people who have been impacted by poverty.  

 

Conference speakers include Iain Duncan Smith MP, David Lammy MP, and Rev Dr Sam Wells, chaired by ITN's Nina Hossain 

 

Poverty amongst children is rising rapidly. XLP sees the damage firsthand. We work in inner-city London, in 7 of the 10 most deprived local authorities in the entire country.

 

Child poverty’s impact goes far beyond money. Its leaves children far more likely to end up facing unfulfilled academic potential and mental health challenges.

 

Mitigating child poverty’s damage needs to be about more than just increasing Government spending. Increased funding for children’s services is needed; but services need to be far more relational in order to address poverty’s true impact. XLP’s frontline experience makes it abundantly clear that long-term, trusted relationships are the best way to address the complex challenges poverty places on children.

 

'Children need more than to be beneficiaries of a system; they need to know they belong, have value and purpose.'

Patrick Regan OBE, Founder of XLP
