Barriers to work: lone parents and the challenges of working
As part of its drive to end child poverty by 2020, the Government aims to encourage 300,000 more lone parents into work.
A number of questions arise, however, about the measures that the government is taking to achieve that goal: Are they appropriate? Will they be effective? What could be done differently?
This report looks at these questions from the perspective of lone parents who use Citizens Advice Bureau (CAB) services.
