This analysis looks at the impact on poverty of increasing the work allowances in Universal Credit back to their original level for families with children. It provides a breakdown of the total number of individuals that would benefit from the change, how many of the beneficiaries are in poverty, and how many would be able to escape poverty as a result. It looks at the impact of the change next year and in the last year of this parliament.
