answer text <p>Where there has been a reported change in Paying Parents income which exceeds the 25% tolerance, the first step we would take is to obtain evidence to verify the income. Dependant on how the change is reported, this could be via the employer, receiving parent, HMRC or the Paying Parent. Where an income change is proven, the next step would be to complete a reassessment/supersession and pursue any arrears payments with the Paying Parent. All steps /actions will be specific to the detail of the case. Ultimately where there is evidence of criminal activity CMG can pursue a criminal prosecution through the CPS.</p> more like this

answer text <p>On 5 November the Government’s Vision for Prevention was published (entitled ‘Prevention is better than cure’). This set out how prevention will be placed at the heart of our health and social care system for the long term. This vision is just the beginning - much more needs to be done to make it a reality. Next year, the Government will work with stakeholders to publish a Green Paper on prevention setting out government plans in more detail, and seeking a wide range of views on what action is most needed. The Department will work closely across Government, and with our partners in health, social care, local government, housing and the voluntary sector.</p> more like this

answer text <p>Widening participation to Higher Education is a priority for this government. The government wants everyone with the capability to succeed in Higher Education to have the opportunity to benefit from a university education, regardless of their background.</p><p>This year, record rates of English 18 year olds, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds, have entered full-time university. However, more could and should be done. That is why in the department’s first guidance to the Office for Students, we asked them to encourage providers to make further progress in ensuring that students from: areas of low higher education participation; low household income; and/or low socio-economic status, can access, participate and succeed in higher education, including at the most selective institutions.</p><p>In addition, a new transparency condition requires higher education providers to publish application, offer, acceptance, non-continuation and attainment rates by socio-economic background, gender and ethnicity. This will provide greater transparency and help drive fairness on admissions and outcomes.</p><p>Prior attainment is a critical factor and the government have asked higher education providers to take on a more direct role in helping to raise attainment in schools as part of their outreach activity. All universities are expected to help raise attainment and support school improvement, including through school sponsorship and by establishing new state schools.</p><p> </p>
