This report, written in partnership with the Resolution Foundation (RF) and Child Poverty Action Group, includes new analysis showing that the flat rate cost-of-living payments made last year only increased two-child families’ income by 3.3%.

It also includes first-person accounts of the hardship facing many families this winter.

The key short-term recommendations include:

  • uprating benefits in line with inflation next year
  • abolishing Benefit Cap and the Two-Child Limit.
