A report by The Children’s Society about the experiences of destitution among some of the most vulnerable young people in England. It reveals alarming levels of destitution among refugee, asylum-seeking and migrant children and young people. Vulnerable young people are being left homeless, hungry, and with no regular source of financial support. These young people are sometimes forced to resort to increasingly desperate means in order to survive. The report examines available data on the extent and impact of destitution, and speaks to young migrants and the people who work to support them. The report sets out the devastating impact being destitute has on children, young people and families.
