I hosted a BAME Roundtable Child Poverty Action Group

I recently hosted a roundtable on child poverty in BAME families.

The roundtable brought together campaigners and parliamentarians around the very latest report 'Inequalities Amplified' from the Child Poverty Action Group, the Runnymede Trust and the Women's Budget Group.

We looked at what the next Government can do to tackle inequalities that mean certain children face a much higher risk of growing up in poverty.

This roundtable explored which demographic groups are most at risk of child poverty and how economic and policy changes have entrenched existing inequalities. It will outline ideas for how the next government can address racial and gender disparities that deepen and prolong child poverty and stifle children’s life chances.
