Musician Misha B went to her hometown to support the launch of The Children’s Society in Greater Manchester, a new initiative that seeks to tackle the high levels of poverty and neglect faced by children and young people.

Misha says:It really shocked me that over 150,000 children in Greater Manchester – and over half where I grew up in Moss Side - live in poverty.

It was inspirational meeting some of the young people at The Children’s Society’s service for young runaways. I know that, like me, they can escape the poverty trap if they have the right support, and if services work together more so that less children slip through the net.’
