Renfrewshire Council

Tackling Poverty strategy and action plan

On Tuesday 20 October 2015, Renfrewshire Council published its Tackling Poverty Strategy 2015 - 2017. 

The strategy and action plan follows on from the work of Renfrewshire's independent Tackling Poverty Commission which announced its recommendations in March 2015 with a call to organisations in Renfrewshire and beyond to step up the fight against child poverty.

The Commission was the first of its kind in Scotland to look specifically at child poverty at local level and handed over a legacy of 24 key recommendations.
