Delivering Social Change
Delivering Social Change is a framework that seeks to co-ordinate key actions across Government Departments to take forward work on priority social policy areas.
It aims to deliver a sustained reduction in poverty and associated issues across all ages but it is also seeking to secure an improvement in children and young people’s health, well being and life opportunities thereby breaking the long term cycle of multi-generational problems.
