About the PCiP initiative
Simply, corporates coming together to make a difference to Plymouth Children in Poverty. PCiP now has three live projects up and running and we will be providing an update on activities underway on the evening.
The issue of children in poverty, in Plymouth, is significant. The “Fairness Commission Report published in 2014 highlighted how a child’s life outcomes were wholly predictable, depending on the ward they were born into, with some wards in Plymouth experiencing child poverty levels in excess of 35%. The issue has worsened since the report. We will be providing an update on the issue on the night of the quiz.
