New research for CPAG by Landman Economics has suggested that the Coaltion is set to increase absolute child poverty by 600,000 children between 2010 and 2015. This is as a result of putting children and families in the front line of their austerity agenda and cuts.
The government has revealed in answer to a parliamentary question that 200,000 children will be pushed into relative income poverty by its bill to cut social security benefits and tax credits in real terms.
A fantastic £5,000 has been raised for our appeal. Donations are still being received and are still very welcome! We would like to say a very big thank you to our fantastic supporters for their generosity in contributing to the vital work of CPAG this festive season.
