New London's Poverty Profile report released

Date Posted: 21 October 2011

New research released on 20th October by Trust for London shows that London is one of the hardest places in the country to be poor for children and young adults. The new annual London’s Poverty Profile presents a huge range of information on poverty and inequality in London. The report finds that on average, poverty is a harsher experience for children in the capital, with more going without everyday items, such as having friends over for tea, leisure activities and a school trip at least once a term.
