More than 13 million of UK in poverty

Over thirteen million people live in poverty in the UK and there are a number of charities working to address this.

These include Oxfam and Shelter, who help the homeless.

One of the ways Oxfam tackles poverty in the UK is by campaigning for better employment rights.

For example, ensuring people are paid a fair wage, that the working conditions are safe, and that sick and holiday pay is honoured.

Shelter is working to end poverty in the UK by campaigning for adequate housing for all children.

The well know charity, Save the Children also have charity work in the United Kingdom to help children in poverty.

This includes an end to overcrowding, and minimum housing standards so children don't have to live in damp, dilapidated and dangerous accommodation.

Barnardo's also work with children in the UK who come from poorer backgrounds.
