Presidential appeal

Over many years the CIH Presidential Appeal has raised thousands of pounds for charities and good causes across the world. Paul Tennant, the current President, has chosen the Child Poverty Action Group as the focus of the Presidential Appeal.

CPAG want a society where all children can enjoy their childhoods and have fair chances in life to reach their full potential. Children living in poverty are almost twice as likely to live in 'bad' housing.

This charity works tirelessly to lead campaigns to end child poverty and for a better deal for low-income families and children. They also provide policy leadership and work with academics, politicians, civil servants, media and the public. CPAG provide advice and guidance to help people at risk and deliver training and events.

The local authority estimates, produced by Donald Hirsch of Loughborough University, are contained in a new report on how local authorities are trying to tackle child poverty at a time of social security cuts and upheaval.
