The apprehension and fear of a generation has been laid bare in a new report compiled by the St Vincent de Paul Society (SVP) on the effects of in-work poverty on children and young people.

The report pulls together existing research on in-work poverty and captures the voices of some of the children and young people the volunteering organisation supports through its Mini-Vinnies groups, as well as those of the SVP volunteers, staff and St Vincent’s community support centres who help people living in poverty every day.

The full report can be found here. You can support people experiencing the effects of in-work poverty by donating to the SVP Christmas Kindness Appeal here, or call 07593 384429.
