The North East Child Poverty Commission in numbers

The Commission in numbers

11 meetings of the Commission in a 20 month period

8 free training sessions on ‘Child Poverty & the Pupil Premium’ provided to over 200 school governors on

Helped secure over £100,000 of funding to tackle child poverty related issues in the North East

92.7% of respondents thought that the North East Child Poverty Commission should continue beyond March 2013

Estimated 130,000 children living in poverty in the North East

All of the above achieved with dedicated resources of 1 co-ordinator

For the last 12 months, a dedicated resource of 1 person, 1 day per week, equivalent to 0.2fte to develop the work of the Commission

We are prearing a short summary of the work we have carried out over the last 18 months or so and thought it might be worth sharing some of these figures with you. Correct at the time of going to press!

Best wishes,

Steve
