Child poverty

There are thousands of children in Kingston that are living in poverty.

Tackling child poverty is one of our top priorities as it can lead to inequality of opportunity, hardship, deprivation and exclusion.  

Our Child Poverty Strategy (adopted in 2011) aims to take 1,000 Kingston children out of poverty. The strategy was developed in consultation with our partners and residents.
