Child poverty and inequality in Northamptonshire: Truly shocking!

Go to this link if you want to look at child poverty data in Northamptonshire broken down by ward for 2010.

Hemmingwell ward in Wellingborough topped the chart for the whole county (57% of children under 15 living in poverty) closely followed by Lumbertubs ward (54.7%), Northampton , Brickhill ward (48.5%), Wellingborough and Kingswood ward (48.4%), Corby! 

There were no children living in poverty in Boughton Green Ward in Northampton and in Brackley East.

The disparities of poverty across the county are truly shocking.

Remember the UK is one of the richest countries in the world, but the extent of inequality and disparities between rich and poor is one of the highest as well
