Child Poverty Rates In Suffolk & Norfolk
New report from End Child Poverty says up to 30% of children in parts of the region are living in poverty.
The figures reveal that whilst poverty rates tend to be lower in the East of England compared to the national picture, there are still areas like Norwich, (30%) Great Yarmouth, (25%) and Ipswich (22%) where it remains an issue..
Other areas like Broadland (10%) and Mid Suffolk (10%) are much lower.

|Kings Lynn and West Norfolk||19%|
Enver Solomon, Chair of the Campaign said:
“The child poverty map reveals the depth and breadth of child poverty across the country and the gross levels of inequality that children face in every region.
“Whilst the levels of deprivation in the East of England are not as high as other parts of the country, there are still far too many children whose parents are struggling to making a living are having to go hungry and miss out on the essentials of a decent childhood that all young people should be entitled to.
“Even in the East of England, the huge disparities that exist across the region have become more entrenched and are now an enduring reality as many more children are set to become trapped in long term poverty and disadvantage.'
