The relationship between children's material circumstances and child abuse and neglect raises aseries of questions for policy, practice, and practitioners. Children and families in poverty aresignificantly more likely to be the subject of state intervention. This article, based on a uniquemixed‐methods study of social work interventions and the influence of poverty,highlights anarrative from practitioners that argues that, as many poor families do not harm their children,it is stigmatizing to discuss a link between poverty and childabuseandneglect. The data revealthat poverty has become invisible in practice, in part justified by avoiding stigma but also because of a lack of up‐to‐date research knowledge and investment by some social workers in an “underclass” discourse. We argue, in light of the evidence that poverty is a contributory factor in the risk of harm, that it is vital that social work engages with the evidence and in critical reflection about intervening in the context of poverty. We identify the need for fresh approaches to the harms children and families face in order to support practices that engage confidently with the consequences of poverty and deprivation.
