Pregnant women, children and people with disabilities among those living on less than 77p a day

We have all heard stories or know of people who can’t afford a hot meal every day. This is a problem for both British born and refugee people. At least we Brits are able to claim benefits but many refugees can’t unless they agree to return to the country they have fled from in fear of their lives. Find out more about failed asylum seekers living below the poverty line, read the Scottish Poverty Information Unit report.
