The Derby Child and Family Poverty Strategy – Areas for Action – is a partnership strategy that was adopted by the Derby City and Neighbourhood Partnerships Leadership Board in June 2013. The strategy was endorsed by Council Cabinet in May, when it was agreed to embed the key areas for action into Council policy.
Workstreams for each Area for Action have been and will be devised by the Derby Child and Family Poverty Commission, which oversees delivery and monitors the impact on child and family poverty in the city. The Commission is chaired by Cllr Martin Rawson – Cabinet Member for Children and Young People.
