8. Tackling Poverty Programme

2021 to 2022 was the fourth year of our five year Tackling Poverty programme. The programme continues to have a positive impact on low-income families in Renfrewshire, supporting projects such as Healthier Wealthier Children advice, Cost of the School Day, and provision of energy advice specifically to families.

The initiatives support two key priorities:

  • targeting support to families to that need it most (£0.7 million allocated)
  • removing barriers to participation for children and young people (£0.4 million allocated).

Specific Tackling Poverty programme funded activities are included within their key theme areas in this report.
