At this webinar delegates discovered more about Children in Wales’ Price of Pupil Poverty Guides. It provided an opportunity for schools and other settings to learn more about the guides and how they can be used, understand the impact poverty has on the everyday lives of children and young people, and provide possible solutions on how to poverty-proof and make a difference. (Children in Wales | Price of Pupil Poverty).
Sadly as a result of the pandemic, we are seeing a growth in the detrimental impact of poverty on children and young people’s wellbeing, and increasing financial pressures on families. The Price of Pupil Poverty Guides can be used as a tool to help mitigate the impact.
