UK Alliance for Investing in Children
The Alliance for Investing in Children (UK) was a 2014 coalition led by Children in Wales, Children in Scotland, Children England and Children in Northern Ireland to encourage investment in children’s support and services.
The aim of the joint action was to campaign together to ensure the effective implementation of the European Commission Recommendation ‘Investing in Children - Breaking the Cycle of Disadvantage’ through research, dissemination and influencing at EU and national level.
The UK Alliance undertook a series of activities in support of the campaign, which included consultation with children and young people, a conference held in December 2014 and a report outlining the principal legislation, policies and programmes for tackling child poverty in the four nations.
