Welfare cuts will push thousands more kids into poverty

Post by Admin on Thu Nov 02, 2017 7:03 am

Hundreds of thousands more children will be pushed below the poverty line in the coming years by the Government’s freeze to benefits, a respected thinktank has said.

Campaigners warned that “twenty years of progress” on child poverty is “at stake” if the Government fails to take action in the upcoming November Budget.

According to the Office for National Statistics there were 2.7 million kids living in relative low income in 2016/17 - up 200,000 since 2014/15 and 400,000 since 2010/11.
