Child Poverty Action Group report: Universal Credit – what needs to change

‘We are very concerned about the growing evidence of structural design flaws which cause real hardship for many claimants, with those in the most vulnerable circumstances most at risk.’

This is from a June 2019 report from the Child Poverty Action Group (CPAG) looking at child poverty under the Universal Credit (UC) system. The report makes recommendations for changes to the design and funding of the UC system in order to reduce child poverty.

Incorporating analysis from IPPR, the report covers various aspects of the UC system, addressing the five-week waiting period, childcare costs, conditionality and sanctions, natural and managed migration to the system, and more.
