star this property answer text <p>No one should be held back from reaching their potential because of their gender. This is why the former Minister for Women and Equalities, my Rt Hon. Friend for Portsmouth North, announced a cross-sectoral Taskforce that looks beyond those in schools to other vulnerable groups in society. The Taskforce includes an ‘Access for all’ workstream which, as part of its remit, will review existing initiatives designed to provide period products to vulnerable groups, identify gaps and highlight the groups on which potential new interventions should focus. The Taskforce will report on this in due course.</p> more like this

Instead, an “applicable amount” is set through legislation passed by Parliament for each benefit.</p><p> </p><p>An applicable amount is a standard national figure which the Government believes reflects the basic living needs of an applicant and their family.</p><p> </p><p>There is no objective way of deciding what an adequate level of benefit should be. Every person has different requirements, and the Government strongly believes that individuals should be free to spend their benefits in the way that best suits their individual circumstances.</p> more like this
