child poverty

Document that sets out Scottish Government's approach under three headings – pockets, prospects and places which are key to tackling child poverty and consistent with the approach set out in 2011.

Report that investigated whether there were indeed differences in early years’ experiences between Scotland and England, and between the three ‘city regions’ of Merseyside, Greater Manchester and Glasgow and the Clyde Valley (GCV), that might partly account for the poorer health status of Scotland, and these areas.

It drew on four cohort studies of children, born in Britain in 1946, 1958, 1970 and 2000, supplemented by analyses of routine data and other large scale surveys.

Analysis to explore how far patterns of change in public attitudes to poverty and welfare relate to (and may be explained by) political and economic developments and experiences, both at the individual and societal level.

Briefing that is based on a report Child poverty outcome models: An international review commissioned by NCB Northern Ireland. It puts forward somekey components that should be included as part of the government's development of future plans for tackling child poverty, including:

Briefing that explores child poverty and its relationship to health and wellbeing. It aims to provide an overview of the following:

  • Why focus on children?
  • What is child poverty?
  • What are the levels of child poverty in Scotland? 
  • How does child poverty impact on health?
  • What impact does child poverty have on health?
  • What actions can be taken to protect children from the impact of poverty?

Rapid review that pulls together evidence from three very different countries on how each has conceptualised the problem of child poverty and how they have tried to prevent or reduce it. The various strategies used are in line with the particular countries’ overall social policy practice and view towards people living in poverty. The countries were selected based on their diversity to one another and the unique lessons each can bring to bear on NI. 

Report that presents the findings from a survey of senior figures (Chief Executives and Council Leaders) and Council officers with an interest and/or responsibility for tackling poverty within Scottish local authorities conducted one year after the introduction of the Child Poverty Strategy for Scotland.

It aims to document and analyse their thoughts – as key informants –on how child poverty is being tackled locally across Scotland.
