A £5 per child weekly top-up to Child Benefit would lift 30,000 children out of poverty.
In a just and compassionate society, it is simply not acceptable that almost one in four children is living in poverty.
Together with a range of children’s charities, anti-poverty campaigners, faith groups, academics and trade unions we are calling on the Scottish Government to use their powers to introduce the top-up.
