star this property answer text <p>Work offers people the best opportunity to get out of poverty. Children of lone parent workless families are around 4 times more likely to be in poverty than those where their parent works full time. We are helping lone parents with the biggest challenges they face. Universal Credit is a modern welfare system where work always pays. Since April 2016, the Universal Credit childcare element covers up to 85% of eligible costs, compared with 70% in the legacy tax credits system. Lone parents are also no longer incentivised to work just 16 hours, unlike the legacy system. National Statistics show there are 100k fewer children of lone parents in absolute poverty than 2010.</p><p>We welcome the work that the Social Metrics Commission has done. Measuring poverty is complex, and this report offers further insight into that complexity and the additional measures that can be taken into consideration. From discussions with SMC they acknowledge that further work needs to be done (particularly around data availability and quality). We will carefully consider their recommendations and the detail behind the methodology they have employed when this has been made available.</p>

Independent reviews form an important part of the learning process and we are constantly looking to improve the experience of claiming PIP. We recognise the scale of the challenge in implementing a new benefit so committed to two, statutory independent reviews of PIP. The latest of these reviews, led by Paul Gray, was published on 30 March 2017 and we plan to respond to this later this year.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>The Department encourages claimants to provide as much relevant evidence as necessary to support their claim. Before claimants are invited for a face-to-face consultation, all of the available evidence is reviewed and if, at that stage, advice to the Department can be made on this evidence alone, the claimants will not be required to attend a face-to-face assessment.</p><p>We continue to work extensively with the PIP assessment providers and disability representative groups to make improvements to guidance, training and audit procedures in order to ensure a quality service.</p>
