The most recent Household Below Average Income (HBAI) figures indicate that some 4.3 million children across the UK were living in poverty in 2019/20, an increase of 200,000 on the year before and 700,000 since 2012. The North East of England has been worst hit, seeing the biggest increase in child poverty between 2014 – 2020 of all regions in the country.
