Improving Benefit take up is vital in the challenge of eradicating child poverty
OPFS has sent evidence to the Scottish Parliament Social Security Committee ‘Inquiry into benefit take-up’.
- Marion Davis, Head of Policy and Strategy
In our submission OPFS says with the predicted increase in the child poverty rate for children in single parent households to over 62% it is vital that single parents access the social security benefits to which they are entitled. The report highlights the main factors influencing non-take-up of benefit and OPFS approach to ensuring single parents get the expert advice they need.
OPFS regularly replies to consultations on the behalf on single parent families in Scotland.See more
