Quotes

"Scottish devolution should trigger a new debate on local autonomy in North East England, where policies are tailored to meet the needs of our region and not those of London and more influences over how their taxes are spent. Our businesses deserve a say in how a new, less centralised UK is governed in future”."
Chief executive Julia Unwin said: "If we don’t act poverty is likely to increase: the parties’ manifestos are the last chance to stem the rising tide of poverty before 2020."
"This is a waste of human potential, a strain on the public purse, and it means the UK economy does not function as well as it could – child poverty alone costs the country £29 billion a year" claimed a spokesman
The report argues that work should be, but often is not, a way to build a better life. "Work should offer a reliable route out of poverty, but barriers such as low skills and the high costs of housing, childcare and transport prevent some people from working or earning more. This traps them in poverty and carries an economic cost" it states
