Understanding the impact of child poverty on the lives of children and families in England: a survey of social workers.
“Respondents (Social Workers) overwhelmingly told us that the lack of support services in local communities had a negative impact on the families they work with, and led to situations escalating in severity as there was little scope for preventative work. Cuts to child and adolescent mental health services were most frequently cited by respondents, but children’s centres, youth services, libraries and cuts to more preventative aspects of local authority children’s services (e.g. early help) were also mentioned frequently by respondents.”
