This toolkit contains resources and activities for groups of young people aged between 16 and 24 who want to start the conversation around poverty in the UK. It was designed by several End Child Poverty Youth Ambassadors.
You can work through each session in order, or pick and choose activities to suit your group set up. The Toolkit is also designed so it can be used for groups were some people may have personal experience of living in poverty, and where others perhaps do not.
The sessions end with guidance on how the group could develop a campaign to tackle the root causes of child poverty in the UK.
