The Sutherland Self Help Trust Board advise that the 2013 grant funding will be made to community organisations that are working to address the prevention of childhood poverty in New Zealand.
Childhood poverty is associated with a range of serious and permanent detrimental health and social outcomes for children. Studies indicate children growing up in poverty tend to have poorer health in adulthood, gain fewer educational qualifications, experience higher rates of unemployment and get in trouble with the law. Yet the children are not responsible for the poverty in their life.
