Who we are and what we do
The UK is one of the richest countries in the world, yet there are 3.6 million children growing up in severe and persistent poverty. The situation is even worse in London, where 4 in 10 children live in poverty.
4in10 was created in response to this crisis of child poverty in London. The project is run by a small team of staff and volunteers who aim to tackle child poverty by:
- creating a network of like-minded voluntary and community organizations, Local Authorities and individuals from across London
- building the capacity of London organizations and individuals interested in tackling child poverty
- providing a forum for London organizations and community members to share best practice, skills, knowledge and expertise on child poverty
- campaigning on key issues that affect the capital’s 600,000 children currently living in poverty.
The generous funding from Trust for London and City Bridge Trust covers our core programme and staff costs. We welcome donations to support different elements of our work – please get in touch with us if you would like any further information about this.
Membership of 4in10 enables you to attend our free good practice seminars, as well as share information with our wide network. A list of our current members can be found here.
