Over recent months we’ve joined up with children’s doctors and teachers to find
out what experience they have of child poverty. As professionals working very
closely with children every day, they have seen the effect that rising poverty
has had – on kids’ health and education. More than two-thirds of paediatricians
we spoke to said poverty and low income contribute ‘very much’ to the ill health
of children they work with, and 87% of school staff we spoke to said that
poverty is having a significant impact on their pupils’ ability to get on in
Working closely with these professionals helps us show why we need change – to
better support families so that children can have happy and healthy childhoods,
and bright futures.
