To achieve this, we introduced the Family Test, which aims to ensure that impacts on family relationships and functioning are recognised early on during the process of policy development and help inform the policy decisions made by Minsters. The Family Test was introduced in 2014, and remains official government policy. The guidance for implementing the Family Test can be found here and is also attached :</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/family-test-assessing-the-impact-of-policies-on-families" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/family-test-assessing-the-impact-of-policies-on-families</a></p><p>The Family Test was considered during the development of the policy to provide support for a maximum of two children in Child Tax Credit and Universal Credit.
