In-work poverty and children’s wellbeing
Our latest report, ‘Stealing futures – In-work poverty and its impact on children and young people’ shines a light on one of the most daunting silent issues facing the UK today and explores the impact in-work poverty has on children and young people. The report pulls together existing research and captures the voices of some of the children and young people we support through our Mini-Vinnies groups, as well those of the SVP volunteers, staff and St Vincent’s community support centres who help households living in poverty every day.
We also use our voice to raise awareness about this issue in the media. Our report has been covered on several national and local press outlets, as well as on BBC Sunday Politics live.
