Commissioned by several foundations, organisations and individual donors, this report uses a combination of quantitative data and qualitative interviews with welfare experts from across the Jewish community to measure the scale of the problem of child poverty and deprivation in the British Jewish community. It paints a portrait of how this is currently being tackled by Jewish welfare agencies, and offers several practical policy recommendations designed to trigger discussion about how best to tackle what is likely to become a growing problem.
