Why lift the two-child limit?
Here in the UK, we believe that every child should have the best start in life. This means access to free health care, a good education, and a childhood free from poverty. We wouldn’t turn away a sick child from our hospitals or stop them going to school. But the two-child limit denies families the support they need from our social security system when they experience tough times - trapping kids in poverty.
We need to help children thrive, by supporting parents to raise happy, healthy children – especially during the first years of a child’s life, when foundations are laid for their future development.
It’s right to support families when they need it most. Our government should lift the two-child limit and help all children thrive.
