The reality of the two-child limit and the benefit cap

April 6, 2023

One of the aims of the project is to document the reality of being affected by the two-child limit and the benefit cap. As part of this effort, a number of the participants have shared their experiences of being subject to these policies and these have been turned into short videos (see below). We are incredibly grateful to those whose voices are recorded here. Their experiences are a powerful reminder and a crucial insight into the daily struggles created by the two-child limit and the benefit cap. We are also grateful to Cat Fortey (illustration), Ros Fraser (audio) and Tom Flannery (production). Feel free to share these on social media.
