New Gingerbread report: ‘Children deserve more’

New Gingerbread report: ‘Children deserve more’

Gingerbread’s new report, ‘Children deserve more: challenging child maintenance avoidance’ has just been published.

The report shows how the Child Maintenance Service (CMS) is unable and unwilling to ensure proper support for children. It highlights shows how current rules, and their implementation, mean many parents pay a fraction of what they can afford to support their children.

Headlines include:

  • The new CMS calculation falls short in assessing a paying parent’s income
  • Recent reforms have made it harder to get a fairer payment
  • The CMS leaves parents in the dark on their options – many give up.

Find out more and share the findings under #ChildrenDeserveMore.
