How the Family Resources Survey has made a difference
Tackling child poverty
The Child Poverty Action Group drew on the survey to launch a national campaign calling for an end to the Government’s proposed child benefit cuts. They argued that if the cuts were introduced, 20,000 children and their families would be thrown into poverty.
A better deal for older people
Results from the survey were used by the Daily Express to back its Respect for the Elderly campaign, which lobbied Government over its plans to cut pensioner’s winter fuel allowance, free bus passes and TV licence. The Express drew attention to the plight of 30,000 pensioners who were living off just £37 a day to cover all their expenses, including rent, bills and food.
