In the UK, 19% of the population is at risk of poverty with an ‘at risk of poverty’ income threshold of EUR 1,001 per month. Naomi, a 29 year old single-mother with two children, lives in Bristol and spent two years at home without a job. With the help of SPAN, the Bristol-based Single Parent Action Network, which is subsidised by the European Union, Naomi found a new group of friends to share her experiences with, as well as a range of facilities to support her and help her to take control of her life again.
