Community and tackling exclusion and poverty

Counting the cost of child poverty

Using balance sheets and graphs, Counting the cost of child poverty calculates the human, social and economic costs of poverty. It also shows how a failure to invest in our children not only deprives them of their own childhood, but also increases the risk that they will become parents who cannot give what is needed to the next generation.
