ALL KIDS COUNT:The impact of the two-child limit after two years

The two-child limit was part of a package of changes to benefits announced in 2015, aimed at reducing spending on working-age families. From 6 April 2017, low-income families having a third or subsequent child lost their entitlement to additional support through child tax credit and universal credit, worth £2,780 per child per year.
This joint report by Child Poverty Action Group and the Church of England presents detailed evidence on the impact of the two-child limit after two years. It is based on a survey of more than 430 families and in-depth interviews with 16 families directly affected by this policy, as well as additional evidence from Women’s Aid, the Refugee Council, Turn2us, and the Interlink Foundation, who work with groups and communities where the two-child limit has particular impacts.
