    Although international migration has always been a feature of national life, this aspect of population change has increased over the last twenty years.  While many migrant families have a reasonable income and a few are very prosperous, migrant children are disproportionally represented among children living in poverty.

  • The impact of poverty on the educational experiences of migrant children

    article

    Although migrants are a diverse group in terms of their employment and earnings, their children are disproportionally represented among those living in poverty in the UK. Poverty impacts on migrant children’s educational outcomes, but also on their social experiences at school. Child poverty also limits the chances of inter-generational mobility among migrants and, in some communities, poor labour market outcomes are becoming entrenched.
