4 in 10 children in London live in poverty

We believe child poverty can be tackled.

It doesn’t have to exist.

It doesn’t have to be hurting the lives of hundreds of thousands of children.

We are 4in10 London’s Child Poverty Network

We are a London-wide campaigning network of over 400 organisations working to improve the lives of children living in poverty across the capital.

We connect people who care, we highlight best practice that works, share information and keep the spotlight on the damage that poverty is doing to families in London.

If you are keen to amplify the views of children, young people, families and frontline workers, and engage community groups working with low income families across London uncovering and representing the best of the VCS responses to child poverty, across the capital, then JOIN US
(membership is free).


We welcome posts from other organisations and individuals that relate to child and family poverty.

You are invited to sign up to the #BaoLab Summit on 11th & 12th May- a chance for Black and Minority Ethnic focused community organisations to come together from across the UK to talk about what matters. Join here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/baolab-summit-tickets-150775067285
