The Bristol Neighbourhoods with the Highest Levels of Child Poverty

At least one in four children in Bristow lives in poverty and struggles to feed thrice in a day, new statistics from the coalition of child poverty has shown. Data from Lawrence Hill, the city’s biggest ward, shows 51 percent of children are from families struggling to make ends meet. The contrast is high when data reveals that only 5.7 percent of children are in poverty in another ward.

According to Sam Royston, chairman of End Child Poverty and Director of Policy and Research at the Children’s Society, “It is scandalous that a child born in some parts of the UK now has a greater chance of growing up in poverty than being in a family above the breadline.

“No family in modern Britain should be struggling to put food on the table, heat their homes and clothe their children.”
