gm poverty monitorGreater Manchester Poverty Action have launched the Greater Manchester Poverty Monitor 2020 detailing key statistics about poverty across the city region. The Monitor draws on data from a range of sources to cover the following seven areas: Child poverty, educational attainment, fuel poverty, food poverty and the poverty premium, health, housing, social security, and the labour market. 

Data is shown at a Greater Manchester and local authority level, and at a more local level where possible. This means you can look at fuel poverty, food insecurity and child poverty rates in your community.

The aim of the Poverty Monitor is to support both policy and practice-based responses to poverty across the region. Key Greater Manchester wide findings:

  • 620,000 people are living in poverty
  • 200,000 children live in households with an income below the poverty line
  • 157,000 households are experiencing fuel poverty
  • 20% of all jobs in Greater Manchester are paid less than the Real Living Wage
