AbstractBarnardos meets children experiencing poverty daily and we know all too well what
the human face of poverty looks like. The circumstances and effects of child and
family poverty are documented in the case studies which appear in this report. They
provide insights into the facts and features of poverty and illustrate its complexity
and the need for targeted and creative responses.
The case studies also demonstrate that while national strategies are essential, they
must have the capacity to be delivered locally and flexibly and in a way that knows
and understands each individual family “story”.
