Living With Poverty: Country Kids

2013 | 29 minutes

Directed by Jez Lewis · Produced by Rachel Wexler


Holt, a beautiful market town in north rural England is known as prosperous and well-heeled, yet it is a hotspot of child poverty. Local charity leader, Julie Alford, works tirelessly with local children and their families. Through this charity, Holt Youth Project, we come to know three families with young children, struggling to balance meager budgets while coping with disability and severe illness among the parents.
