Changing the Story: The impact of our UK work in 2013

In 2013, a lack of jobs, low wages and increased living costs placed an enormous pressure on families across the UK. We live in one of the richest countries in the world and yet children living in deprived areas have to go through the winter without a heated home. Some even have to sleep on an old mattress on the floor because they don’t have their own bed.

These children face challenges later on in life as they go to school tired and hungry, which in turn impacts on their chances of achieving good grades.

Poverty ruins childhoods and destroys futures. Those first early years of a child’s life are key to a child’s development and future life chances.

Save the Children has always worked in the UK but as times grew tough, the need for our work here increased. In 2013, we worked hard with schools and communities to help families through the toughest times and tackle the underlying causes that keep families poor, generation after generation.
