Details

This planner has been created to support practitioners who work with families affected by child poverty. Knowing how to work collaboratively and being able to signpost families to agencies will allow a practitioner to share knowledge and experience and therefore support families in getting help to address the causes of poverty.

The planner has also been made to support parents who are affected by poverty. It is envisaged that the planner will be placed so is visible to parents who can look to it in their own time to find out what individuals and services are available to support them in their local area.

The service providers listed on the planner have been identified as those who may potentially be involved in tackling child poverty. Guidance is provided on the roles and duties of these organisations so that practitioners and parents can better understand their responsibilities.
