Insight speaks to those living in, or close to poverty, from around the country about what everyday life is like for them and what changes would  make a difference to their lives

In this programme we hear from the people not the policy makers: from a single father in Nelson to pensioners in Taranaki, a family in Auckland and whanau in Northland.
