Family Supports

Early years

Babies born to low-income families are more likely to be below or above normal weight, and babies with birth weights outside the normal range may face risk factors that can increase their chances of poverty later in life, while children living in deep poverty are among the most vulnerable and face the most barriers to exiting poverty.

Educational progress

Children have a better chance to succeed as students and later in life when they attend school ready to learn. They are more likely to perform well in school and grow up to find stable employment and are less likely to experience physical and mental health issues.
