From the project launch, we have been writing occasional blogs about the work we are doing, and why. So far this has included:
An introductory blog setting out why we are focusing on larger families and poverty, and why 2020 seems to be a good year to start this work.
A blog for LSE Policy & Politics looking at the particular problem with the endurance of the benefit cap, at a time when the COVID-19 pandemic, means the government is targeting additional support at some - but not all - families. The cap stops this additional support getting to capped families.
A blog for our project partner - CPAG - calling not he government to lift the Benefit Cap during the COVID-19 pandemic.
