Preventing, mitigating or solving child income poverty? The Expert Advisory Group 2012 report
In March 2012 the Expert Advisory Group on Solutions to Child Poverty (EAG) was established by the Children’s Commissioner to make recommendations that, if not fully ‘solving’ child poverty, would realistically reduce and mitigate its effects. The advice was to inform the Ministerial Committee on Poverty, whose focus was specifically on tangible gains ‘getting value for money in a tight economic climate’ (Commissioner for Children, 2012).
