We are members of the End Child Poverty coalition. With over 90 other organisations, we campaign to improve the lives of children and families and hold the Government of the day to account on their promise to end child poverty by 2020.

The Welfare Reform and Work Bill must not ignore income as a cause of poverty. We know Money Matters to the families and children we support every day across the UK.

Low income families deserve to be able to afford the day-to-day essentials they need. To give all children the best start in life the Government must apply as much focus to tackling the day-to-day reality of poverty, as tackling the wider causes and investing in early.

 

We welcomed the decision not to introduce the cuts to in-work tax credits because they are a lifeline to families struggling to make ends meet. Our work does not stop here. Income must remain as a measure of poverty. Money matters. It has always been important to families and will continue to be for all future generations.
