Child poverty continues to matter

Education - in general educational attainment decreases as levels of child poverty increase in Cornwall. This relationship gets stronger at Key Stages 2 & 4. Patterns of under achievement get harder to reverse by the teenage years.

Employment - there are neighbourhoods in Cornwall where worklessness is a severe and persistent problem. These areas are closely associated with child poverty - in some neighbourhoods over 50% of children live in benefit dependent households.

Health - 11% of children in reception classes in Cornwall and 18% of children in year 6 are classified as obese. Studies show links between poverty & social exclusion. If obesity is not addressed it can result in serious medical problems including heart disease, type 2 diabetes (non-insulin dependent), high blood pressure and osteoarthritis.

Social -Adults and young people convicted of offences are often some of the most socially excluded within society. Deprived areas experience a disproportionate amount of crime and there is a significant correlation between crime rates and the Indices of Multiple Deprivation 2007
