The first Child Poverty Delivery Plan due under the Child Poverty (Scotland) Act 2017. Outlining action for the period 2018-22.

Executive Summary

This Tackling Child Poverty Delivery Plan covers the period 2018-22.

It sets out new policies and proposals to help us make strong progress towards the ambitious child poverty targets set for 2030. Its actions are organised in two ways:

• Actions to make progress now on the three main drivers of child poverty (income from work and earnings; costs of living; income from social security)

• Actions to help children and young people in poverty now avoid bringing up their own children in poverty in 2030 (this includes a focus on quality of life and partnership working).
