Tackling child poverty: second year progress report - annex C
Introduction

Introduction

Throughout the Tackling Child Poverty Delivery Plan 2018-2022, emphasis is placed on 'priority families' most at risk of poverty. This annex focuses on one of these priority groups, lone parent families. It presents, where possible, breakdowns of Child Poverty Measurement Framework indicators by family type. It also draws on wider evidence about the drivers of poverty, with quotes from lone parents who have engaged with One Parent Families Scotland illustrating their lived experience of poverty. Finally, the report sets out the actions recommended by stakeholder organisations to address poverty among lone parent families.
