Increasing employment and reducing child poverty are two central goals of current government welfare reform policy in the UK and single parents – with their relatively low employment rates and relatively high poverty rates - are one of the key target groups for both. This article outlines welfare reform policies in the UK with particular reference to single parents, and discusses the impact of these. In doing so, it highlights some key differences compared with the US.
