Please sign and share this petition https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/202019

Following our collective lobbying efforts, the Government exempted kinship carers when taking on kin children from the 2 child restriction on child tax credit. But the way the Regulations have been written means a kinship carer is hit if they then go on to have their own baby. Listen to a sibling carer who has been penalised by the new rules. https://www.theguardian.com/society/vid ... efits-trap

Family Rights Group is now leading a campaign to get the Regulations amended so all so all kinship care households are exempt for the two child restriction on child tax credit. Melanie Onn MP has raised this at Prime Minister’s Questions and there have been articles in the national newspapers. As part of our campaign, we are asking your to sign and share this petition https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/202019 (e.g. via Facebook or Twitter, to your family and friends) in order to ensure that there is a Parliamentary debate.
Many thanks

Cathy Ashley (Chief Executive, Family Rights Group)
