Child poverty is sadly documented all too frequently. As such, all local authorities have a legal duty to reduce this by working with partners. To help achieve this, the client, a local authority, decided to create an elearning programme as part of their Child Poverty Reduction Strategy. Ultimately, the programme focuses on helping families take the necessary steps to avoid the pitfalls of child poverty. Local authority employees and their partners are the individuals following the programme so as to increase their awareness of child poverty and subsequently educate those families in need.
The programme comprises five modules and is in use across the region.
