Falmouth North - 24.5% of children living in poverty

Well, this was upsetting.


Falmouth North (which is basically Falmouth Penwerris) has the second highest levels of children living in poverty in Cornwall at 24.5%.


One quarter of all children living in my division are living in poverty. That’s a staggering percentage.


Child poverty has risen and risen under this government over the last 12 years. The last Labour government took a million children in this country out of poverty.

Something has to change. The lives and futures of our children, in Falmouth, are becoming harder and more limited.
