London Funding Cuts and Child Poverty

london_funding

The map is a cartogram showing the level of child poverty for each of London’s councils in addition to their predicted loss in revenue spending power resulting from the recent government cuts. As you can see the shapes of some of the poorest boroughs in London have been enlarged to reflect high levels of child poverty. The darkest colours, sadly, also seem to match the most enlarged boroughs, showing that they will be hardest hit by the cuts.
