People on Working Families Tax Credit (WFTC) have barely enough money to support their families and taking a percentage of this income off them causes severe financial harm. These people want to work, but why should they slave away for a pay packet that is less than those on Income Support Benefit The UK Government and the CSA feel it is acceptable for working families to receive an income that is comparable to Income Support Benefit. This is a highly misguided and unfair philosophy. Families on Income Support are in receipt of other benefits including: full Council Tax rebate and subsidised housing costs, whereas mothers and fathers receiving WFTC have to struggle to make ends meet after a CSA Assessment. This is an anomaly that has to be corrected especially if the UK Government wishes to eliminate child poverty.
We also would like the Government and the CSA to realise that the care, attention and love for the children of the previous relationship is just as important as financial compensation. We also would like the Government and CSA to understand that we do sacrifice many things in order to sustain a loving and stable relationship with our children. WFTC is payed to low income and poor working families. Why make them poorer This only damages the children of all relationships.
Officially, in the UK, households are poor when their income is less than 50% of the average household income, which currently stands at
