The European Cities Against Child Poverty Network, was an EU -wide partnership led by GLE , working together with the London Development Agency (LDA ), the London Councils and the cities of Amsterdam, Budapest, Helsinki and Milan. The two-year project addressed the root causes of child poverty in our cities by sharing practical experience.
- Browse European Cities Against Child Poverty reports and newsletters for information on policies and programmes that are working successfully to tackle child poverty across five major European cities.
- Read about key case studies where Child Poverty was effectively tackled.
We take a holistic approach when analysing child poverty, which includes the following themes: role of education and health care policy to break cycles of deprivation, access to employment for parents, the impact of poor housing conditions on children.
Through the network, practitioners in charge of social services in partner cities shared tried and tested approaches on how best to tackle child poverty through initiatives and policies, taking the best practice from all partners and developing a practical guide to help shape future policy – to make a real difference.
