Child Poverty Strategy for Scotland

This strategy sets out the Scottish Governments commitment to eradicating child poverty and outlines the approach to meeting the 2020 targets laid out in the Child Poverty Act 2010. The strategy emphasizes maximising household incomes, and working with national and local partners to drive change. The strategy compliments other early years policy and strategy and is underpinned by similar principles:

• Early intervention and prevention to break cycles of poor outcomes

• Building on the assets of individual and communities

• Ensuring that children and families are at the centre of service design and delivery.
