Capital Gains – One Year On
Progress report on delivery of the Commission’s recommendations
A year ago we set out our challenge to government and other
agencies on what they needed to do to tackle child poverty in London.
With 14 per cent of the UK’s poor children living in London, this is
crucial to achieving the government’s target of halving child poverty by
2010 and eradicating it by 2020.
Undoubtedly the issue of child poverty and its specific features in
London have received a great deal of attention over the last year.
Many agencies have taken action or committed to taking action, but
much more needs to be done. And the challenge has become even
more difficult in the current economic climate.
