Redundancies at Child Poverty Action Group

Charity does not yet know how many of its 41 staff will be affected

The Child Poverty Action Group has announced it will be making redundancies in its London office as part of a restructure of the organisation.

The charity said it did not yet know how many of its 41 staff would be affected but said it hoped most of the affected employees would be redeployed within the organisation.

It said the restructure would enable the organisation to focus its resources on social policy and lobbying work. It is in talks about the plans with trade union Unite, which represents the majority of its staff.

Staff at the charity's office in Glasgow will not be affected by the announcement.

Kate Green, chief executive of the Child Poverty Action Group, said: "I believe this restructure will give us the capability to have the biggest impact on eradicating child poverty by refocusing our priorities and our work to where we can make the biggest difference.

"Retraining will be required in some cases, and we are committed to offering that."
