The End Child Poverty Coalition is made up of over 80 organisations including child welfare groups, social justice groups, faith groups, trade unions and others.
Together with a group of Youth Ambassadors we all believe that no child growing up in the UK should live in poverty.
Together we ask that this and future governments, commit to end child poverty.
To do this we:
- Engage with young people providing opportunities for them to share their experiences with decision makers,
- Share knowledge and develop solutions with coalition members,
- Campaign together, uniting coalition members and young people to ask central and devolved governments to end child poverty.
The work of the Coalition is governed by a smaller Steering Group which is led by the Chair – Joseph Howes, CEO of Buttle UK.
End Child Poverty is currently hosted by the Child Poverty Action Group, and employs one member of staff – the Coalition Coordinator who works three days a week.
The End Child Poverty coalition was set up in 2003 to leverage the work of a wide range of groups all of whom shared the objective of eradicating child poverty in the UK.
The coalition has worked to inform the public about the causes and effects of child poverty; forge commitment between, and across, the public, private and voluntary sectors to end child poverty; and to promote the case for ending child poverty with Government.
