Discussing child poverty in Poland

During the FRA Director’s visit to Poland, national authorities hosted a seminar on child poverty on 30 November.

The seminar focused on the Programme 500+ which provides a monthly child allowance for families with children.

The participants discussed the programme’s impact on child poverty, how to ensure all families access it, including single-headed families, and ways of evaluating impact.

The Agency presented different research findings and its ongoing work related to child poverty.
