The Child Poverty (Scotland) Act 2017 places a duty on local authorities and regional health boards in Scotland to produce annual Local Child Poverty Action Reports (LCPARs) describing ongoing and planned action to tackle child poverty at local level. National guidance suggests that the LCPARs be developed collaboratively with local partners and that they bring about a ‘step change’ in action to tackle child poverty. It is expected that the first round of LCPARs will be submitted to the Scottish Government by the end of June 2019.

 

To support this work the Improvement Service is hosting a National Coordinator for Local Child Poverty Action Reports. The Coordinator will work with local authorities and health boards to support the development of LCPARs by acting as a child poverty champion, sharing and promoting good practice and working to ensure local reports are an effective lever for tackling child poverty in Scotland.
