The percentage of children living in poverty in Twerton (36%) and Southdown (29%) is the highest in Bath and North East Somerset.

A grant of £1000 has been awarded to fun weekly Rugbytots sessions for young children attending the First Steps community nursery in Twerton for two terms in 2020.
Rugbytots provides fun, structured outdoor play sessions, using creative play and rugby skills, which engage young children in physical activity and play, which they love, led by an experienced Rugbytots coach, who supports and encourages them every step of the way, whilst teaching skills of how to catch, pass, run with and kick a rugby ball, and play as part of a team.
