Abstract

Thomas Wardle argues that the Child Poverty Act misses the point by relying exclusively on financial targets. The deep-rooted problems that families in poverty face cannot be solved by simple cash handouts. We need to ensure that the government is held to account for poverty of circumstance as much as financial poverty.
