Families losing out due to benefit cap

This item in the Guardian paints a worrying picture about the impact of continued welfare reform under the government programme.

Whilst there is no time to be complacent, we are lucky in Kingston to have such strong working relationships between the voluntary sector and JCP and RBK that we can hopefully provide the best support to individuals finding it difficult to cope financially as a result of welfare benefit changes.

We also have the power of Citizens Advice campaigning nationally to improve polices that affect people’s lives and to gather and share evidence of injustice with policy makers so that they can make changes to alleviate suffering and hardship.
