Are children from the poorest families being given a decent start in life? Can retired people live adequately on a state pension? Unemployment levels may have fallen, but are the jobs available jobs people want? Can people cope on benefits? Unemployment, homelessness, child poverty, pensions - all are contentious. At 1200 BST on 4 June, in the Norland Community Centre, Scotswood, Newcastle, we'll be joined by a panel of guests to discuss the state of our welfare system. Among those speaking will be the Reverend Jeremy Clark-King, James Anderson from the End Child Poverty Coalition and socio-economics professor Jane Wheelock.
