Child Poverty Action Group

By working together, we can help secure a vision of a society free from child poverty.

We are a charity working for children in the UK. We believe no child should grow up in hardship or lose out through poverty – but right now, in every school class of thirty children, on average nine will be living in poverty. Of these, five will live in a working family

We aim to prevent and end child poverty by providing evidence-based solutions to child poverty to policy makers, and accurate information and advice so families can access the support they need.


Covering everything from universal credit and tax credits, to benefit entitlements for migrants and beyond, our sector-leading titles help you to navigate the complexities of the latest welfare reforms.

Must-have titles this year include the latest edition of our Welfare Benefits and Tax Credits Handbook ; a new addition to our popular ‘essentials’ series, looking at Financial Help for Families ; and the return of our flagship policy publication, Poverty: the facts .
