Monday - Causes and Effects of Poverty

The simplest definition of poverty is that you don't have enough money to meet your most basic needs - the costs of your home, heating, food and water.

Dumfries and Galloway Council together with all of our partners want to help all individuals and families who suffer from any form of poverty.

Today we are looking at the causes and effects of poverty. You will find information from organisations who are here to help, providing advice and support to all who need it.
