People living in Bassetlaw are among those most at risk of poverty, a report from the Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) has revealed.

The findings show that our district sits in the top 25 per cent of areas with the highest risk of poverty.

Out of 326 local authorities in England, Bassetlaw also ranks highly for its residents being at risk of a whole raft of inequalities including deprivation, child poverty, lower life expectancy and long term unemployment.
