Millions of unpaid child maintenance owed to parents

Across the country, a total of £4 billion is owed in child maintenance arrears. Child maintenance is more than just money, it helps provide the basics for children, from food on the table to clothes on their backs. The government cannot walk away from the task of collecting unpaid maintenance debts. When child maintenance isn't paid, children go without. 

We need your help. Please take action by sending a letter to your MP asking them to back our campaign calling for a fairer child maintenance system for single parent families.
