Benefits capped

 
December 6th 2016
 

November this year saw the introduction of new, reduced benefits caps from the UK Government.

The cap will affect thousands of people receiving benefits across the UK, including those supported by JSA, ESA, Housing Benefit and Child Benefits.

The Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) has estimated that more than 300,000 poorer children from around 116,000 charities will be affected by the new cuts.

The government says the cap is “a clear incentive to move into a job”. But the policy has been criticised by campaigners and unions.
