Child poverty mission

On this page you can view the Council's plan on tackling child poverty in Redcar and Cleveland.

Four in ten children in Redcar and Cleveland are growing up in poverty, which impacts their education and life chances.

We are working together with partners to pull together a plan which enables the children of the borough to start life well, live well and then age well. You can view our Child poverty mission statement below:

The plan will be soon followed by a more detailed strategy where we’ll be working with young people and local organisations to tackle child poverty within Redcar and Cleveland.
