In the UK, 1.6 million children live in severe poverty. We're working to change this. We've made big changes for children in the UK over the years, including improving the treatment of young offenders, providing safe play places for children after the Second World War, and successfully lobbying for milk to be given to school children. We're now focused on lobbying the government to keep its promise to end child poverty in Britain by 2020.
