Children in Poverty Inverclyde was formed in January 2014 to significantly assist in the alleviation of poverty on children in Inverclyde where nearly 1000 children are classified as being in poverty.
While the world has moved on in many regards, for some in society not a great deal has changed. The welfare and development of children and families are uppermost in our thoughts. We believe that the family unit is our number one priority and that children within those families are supported, encouraged and developed fully.
Our priority is to provide assistance to those who face daily challenges within our key priority areas; Poverty,Health, Equality and Participation. In addition we offer support in the form of donated clothing to other organisations(Childrens Centres, Foodbank & Homeless Group) whose principles fit within these key priority areas.
We aim to:
2. Improve Health
3. Promote Equality
4. Encourage Participation
