Scotland is a country where compassion is strong, but where child poverty is an ongoing injustice that we have to end together.
Best Start, Bright Future, the Scottish Government’s Tackling Child Poverty Delivery Plan, was published at the end of March. It’s designed to help create the change we need to drive down child poverty and reach Scotland’s interim child poverty targets in 2024.
There are a lot of commitments in the plan, and we are hosting a special morning webinar on Zoom to explore how we can make sure they are implemented, and how they can best deliver practical change in our communities.
The plan includes pledges to: increase the level of the Scottish Child Payment; create a new employability offer to help parents get into work, and; mitigation of the benefit cap.
There is lot more besides, and Best Start, Bright Futures will touch on all areas of anti-poverty activity in Scotland. It is crucial for groups and organisations across the country to understand what it all means for their work.
