Abstract

Lone parents’ entitlements to UK welfare benefits have become
increasingly tied to their participation in the labour market in
recent years, most notably via the expanded application of Lone Parent
Obligations to all families with school-age children and introduction
of Universal Credit (UC) requirements affecting those with pre-school children.
This briefing presents key findings from a longitudinal study which assessed
the effectiveness and ethical legitimacy of welfare conditionality as it affects
lone parents.
