Work needed to address growing levels of child poverty – Gildernew

Sinn Féin MLA Colm Gildernew has said work is needed to address the growing levels of child poverty.

The party’s communities spokesperson was speaking after the Comptroller & Auditor General published their report on child poverty.

Colm Gildernew said:

“The Comptroller and Auditor General’s report highlights the number of children living in poverty and the impact this can have on their life experiences.

“It is clear there is work to be done to address the growing levels of child poverty and lessons to be learned as work continues towards finalising the Anti-Poverty Strategy.

“The Minister for Communities must make this a key priority, the cost of not doing so is simply too high both for those affected personally and to public services in the long term.

“Sinn Féin remains focused on addressing inequality in all its forms and to improving the prosperity and opportunities of all citizens.”
