Child Poverty Action Group (CPAG) promotes action to prevent and end poverty among children and families with children in the UK. Alice Woudhuysen, who manages CPAG’s London campaign, is looking for a politically active group of parents who are interested in taking action to prevent and end child poverty in their local area – or in London more widely.
It’s completely up to you what you decide to campaign on: you might want to lobby your council to extend universal free school meals across the borough, or to pay the London Living Wage. Free childcare might be an issue in your area, so you may want to campaign for more extend school services such as breakfast clubs and after-school clubs, which act as a form of childcare.
Whatever the issue, Alice can help you pick it and work out your strategy by running a workshop with you. She’ll also provide you with all the materials you need for launching your own campaign and be with you every step of the way, for as long as you need.
If this is something you and your group of friends might be interested in doing, do please get in touch with Alice on 020 7812 5210 or by email on awoudhu[email protected]
