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’.

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.
