Abstract: This review presents evidence to support local authorities and Community Planning Partnerships (CPP) to: 1. Identify factors that may mitigate the effects of child poverty. 2. Make suggestions on how the local authority can act to prevent child poverty occurring. 3. Identify early trigger signs that may suggest an increased risk of poverty. These three issues are explored for families through pregnancy, in the child’s early years and in the primary school years, under the themes: income maximisation, education and childcare. A fourth theme, lone parenthood, will be explored as a stand-alone cross-cutting theme.
