Report explores poverty through eyes of children

Posted on: Wed 5 Dec 2018

A new study exploring the experiences of poverty and disadvantage in children and young people has been released.

The study represents the first attempt to measure deprivation and exclusion through the eyes of young Australians who are often treated as passive and invisible in poverty research.

Anne Hampshire, Head of Research and Advocacy at The Smith Family speaks to Small Change‘s Lisa Burns about the report’s findings.
