    Abstract

    This dissertation is going to ‘Investigate the life chances of children aged 4-11 years from families experiencing poverty’. Within this, three sections will be established in order to discuss and analyse the investigation and identify relevant debates and issues that work in contact with the End Child Poverty by 2020 campaign. In 2006, it was stated “Despite being a wealthy nation, with a strong economy and the highest employment rate among the G8, the UK has comparatively high levels of child poverty” (Harker, 2006, P. 5-6). This statement raises questions, in fact it questions where the difficulties lay in the UK for maintaining an adequate lifestyle for children growing up, but also signifies the difficulties parents and families face today in supporting children and giving them good health and wellbeing.
