The horrors of child poverty come to light as figures reveal millions lack essentials

Date:


And one million of them are under four, warns a report from charity The Joseph Rowntree Foundation. Some are missing out on essentials like a winter coat, decent shoes or a warm home, it was said.

The findings come from the charity’s annual poverty report.

JRF analyst Peter Matejic said: “Millions are now going without essentials such as food, heating and cleanliness.

“It’s heartbreaking and wrong. Leaving people to go hungry, skip showers or live in cold homes risks further profound and long-term consequences.”
