A suite of nine Child Poverty Pilots have been operating across England since 2008, with over a third of local authorities involved with at least one of the initiatives. This interim synthesis report brings together information from each of the pilots, and draws out early findings from across the evaluation evidence to help inform practitioners and policy makers at national and local level.
The report focuses on implementation and delivery evidence, and explores the following cross-cutting themes:
- pilot participants
- developing tailored, innovative and localised solutions
- early indications, experiences and perceptions of pilot services.
The report was commissioned by the Child Poverty Unit.
