    For a family anything below £13K is poor in ny opinion.

    But for an individual ~13k is manageable.

    I'm not sure what you mean by poverty "time" but I would say somewhere in the region of 5k-7k and below.

    But even these feel too low tbh.
    Maybe I am overestimating the value of money.

    Ignoring housing costs (which are dependent on location) I'd say:

    Monthly:

    - £30 gas
    - £20 elec
    - £15 water
    - £150 food
    - £50 others

    = £3180 a year. So the poverty line would be £3180 + housing costs imo. I've lived on far less.
