Thank you for interest in attending the child poverty event on ...(Tuesday 23rd February at PERA innovation Centre in Melton Mowbray) at which we aim informally to consult on draft
guidance relating to Part 2 of the Child Poverty Bill.

Please find attached an initial draft of the guidance which has been produced by the Child Poverty Unit (CPU). This draft is not being published at this stage and is very much a “working draft”, on
which we are seeking your and colleagues’ view around the country over the next

comments direct to the CPU, and after the interim guidance has been issued there
will be a formal consultation prior to guidance being issued on a statutory

Thank you again for agreeing to attend this event and we look forward to seeing you then”
