'Below the Breadline' is Barnardo's pioneering research project into the experiences and events that shape the lives of families living in poverty.

The study spent a year following 16 families from across the UK who were living below the poverty line. The aim of the study was to find out what it's really like to live in poverty in the UK today and to examine some of the pressures families experience as a result of poverty.
