Give Me Five - child benefit top up campaign
CPAG are members of the Give Me Five Campaign.
We are calling on MSPs to ensure the 2018/19 budget and Scottish Government spending plans include a top-up of child benefit by £5 per week.
Increasing child benefit by just £5 a week for every child could lift 30,000 children out of poverty
Poverty currently affects one in four children in Scotland, but it doesn’t have to be that way. We believe that poverty can be solved.
Tackling poverty is good for us all, and we believe that social security should help enable children to access all the opportunities available to them.
