Discuss how living on a low income may impact on Julie and Ali growth and development
Having a low income would affect Julie and Ali mainly negatively. Julie may be suffering from and
stress and anxiety as she would be worrying about bills, rent food etc. Even though she is on a
low income she still needs to be able to support and provide for Ali. She may even be suffering
