Children in poverty are the next victims of George Osborne’s Budget.
He wants to cut child tax credits – the essential support for families who aren’t getting paid enough to live on.
All children deserve to start life on an equal footing. But low wages can put barriers in the way of a happy and healthy childhood. That’s why some of the poorest families get help to pay for essentials, like healthy food and school uniforms.
This support means thousands of children don’t have to experience poverty at the start of their lives.
The Budget is next week, and over 250,000 38 Degrees members have signed the petition the government is still arguing about what to announce. Let’s make sure these cuts are off the table.
