New report highlights the depth of child poverty in the UK

by

A report, Living With Hardship 24/7, was published recently by the Frank Buttle Trust, detailing the hardships faced by the one in three children that grow up in poverty in the UK. It finds that a quarter of the country’s poorest households cannot afford to put a daily hot meal on the table for every family member. Children as young as five were found to be so aware of thier parents’ financial difficulties that they gave back money to help support the family.

The Independent’s report can be found here. It is claimed that the report can be downloaded from the Buttle Trust website here, but I can’t find it.
