The four ‘Life Chances’ measures introduced through the Welfare Reform and Work Act 2016, which replaced the income based targets set out in the Child Poverty Act 2010, are designed to drive action and measure progress in the areas that we know can make the biggest difference - parental worklessness and children’s educational achievement.</p><p>The measures are based on official statistics produced by the Office for National Statistics on the proportion of children in workless households and the proportion of children in long-term workless households; and on Department for Education statistics on the educational attainment at Key Stage 4 of all pupils, and of disadvantaged pupils.</p><p>Although these statistics do not <ins class="ministerial">all<ins class="ministerial"> </ins></ins>provide data for individual constituencies, local authority-level data is available for the measure of all children in workless households and for both the educational attainment measures.</p><p>In 2016, 21.4 per cent of children were in workless households in Wolverhampton local authority.

star this property answer text <p>The eligibility for passported benefits is often, but not always, linked to entitlement to income-related benefits such as Income Support, income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance, income-related Employment and Support Allowance, Universal Credit and Pension Credit. The introduction of Support for Mortgage Interest Loans in April 2018 will not change these criteria.</p><p> </p><p>In some instances, claimants who are treated as receiving the income-related based benefit solely due to eligibility for SMI will no longer be automatically entitled to all ‘passported’ benefits. Many of these claimants will remain eligible to a number of passported benefits on the grounds of age or low income but will usually need to apply for them directly.</p><p><strong> </strong></p> more like this
