Campaign with us

We all want children to have the best start in life. But in every school class of 30 children, on average, nine will be living in poverty. This is not right.

We're calling for a £10 increase to child benefit. It's lost nearly a quarter of its value since 2010. We know parents use it to meet kids' needs. Our child benefit advent calendar will highlight some of the ways child benefit supports parents and carers to ensure all children have the best start in life.

Make universal credit fit for families

We're campaigning for universal credit, the new benefit being rolled out across the UK, to better support families.

All kids count: lift the two-child limit

The two-child limit, which restricts universal credit and tax credits to two children in a family, is causing child poverty.

Don't Zap the Zip: Keep London transport free for under 18s

The government is about to ‘temporarily’ suspend free travel for under 18s in London, to protect public health during the pandemic. This will be a disaster for families with children who are already struggling.
