What are the public’s attitudes to people living in poverty?
About the report

Opportunities for people living in poverty has been a long-term social concern – one that is only set to grow.

The cost of living crisis is making it harder for greater numbers of people to afford the basics and pushing more people into destitution.

Engage Britain commissioned King’s College London to better understand public attitudes to opportunities for people in poverty.

And to identify a space in which Engage Britain can help to move the UK conversation forward through participatory approaches.
