We are holding a webinar to launch our report on childhood poverty in the under 5s, supported by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, on Thursday 11th February from 1:30pm – 2:30pm.
To mark our 5th anniversary, we commissioned exclusive research from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation to examine the rates, persistence and depth of poverty in families with babies and pre-school children.
Alongside our own qualitative research with families undertaken during the Covid pandemic, this analysis provides a unique insight into the scale and impact of poverty amongst families with babies, toddlers and young children in the UK.
In this webinar, Sophia Parker, Founder of Little Village, will give an overview of our findings and recommendations from our report ‘It takes a village: how to make all childhoods matter’. We’ll also propose priorities for action on poverty in the early years and discuss what needs to change to ensure every parent is able to give their child the start in life they deserve.
