Child Poverty in London

The End Child Poverty campaign has produced a report that shows many parts of London to be among the poorest int he country. Its list of the 20 UK local authorities containing the highest percentages of children in poverty contains eleven of the capital’s 32 boroughs, with Tower Hamlets topping the list on 52%. Islington, Westminster, Hammersmith and Fulham and Barking and Dagenham are up there too. The massive gap between the capital’s richest and poorest is illuminated by the Eng Child Poverty Campaign report.

It is also well illustrated on the excellent website ‘London’s Poverty Profile’.
