More than a million children in the UK live in 'Bed poverty'. They have no bed. Many children share beds, and many sleep on the floor. Bed poverty is because people are poorer. Everything is more expensive. Even a bed is now a "luxury" item for poorer people. No bed means children are tired. They cannot concentrate at school.

Bed poverty shows that it is difficult for people in Britain. Parents do not have enough money to buy food to keep their children healthy. Many families have to choose between heating and eating. Bed poverty is bad for children's mental health. People want the government to fix the problem of poverty.
