Government must do more to support young people on benefits – report
Harsh benefit rules mean some young people are forced to live on less than £3 a day, report says.

Posted by Welfare Weekly - 23rd May 2018

A report published today (23 May 2018) by the Social Security Advisory Committee (SSAC) calls on the UK government to do more to help young people living independently take advantage of training and employment opportunities by easing the immediate – and in some cases very significant – pressure on their day-to-day budgets.

At least 300,000 young people live independently on benefits – that’s 1 in 25 of all 16 to 24 year olds. Many of them have absolutely no choice but to live independently due to circumstances outside of their control. They may, for example, be care leavers without any close family or unable to live at home because they are at risk of abuse or violence.
