Mind the gaps - briefing 12

Post date: 
20 August 2020

This is the twelfth in a series of regular briefings, Mind the Gaps, which highlight some of the gaps in support that exist for children and families affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Evidence of these gaps is drawn from our Early Warning System (EWS) which collects case studies from frontline practitioners working directly with families on the problems they are seeing with the social security system.

This briefing focuses on low-income workers who followed government advice when COVID-19 hit, and became worse off.
