Child poverty

Buttle UK has released findings from a survey of 1,290 child support workers from 616 organisations looking at their experiences of education for children and young people in poverty across the UK. Findings include: 79% of frontline workers report seeing parents who are struggling to afford the costs associated with school at least once a week; 88% of respondents regularly see parents being unable to afford the basics (food, fuel and household items), and 55% regularly see children without an appropriate bed of their own, resulting in a lack of sleep and issues in being able to concentrate in class.
