We help the children – then overthrow the municipalities

"the Mayflower charity foundation: Absurd, when municipalities lower the income support when families with children received majblommepengar"

"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."

"the DEBATE. ”I thought it would be good for the children to for once get new clothes and a bike but now I feel the tears and the stupid that is being searched. Is there any possibility to take back what we had granted, if it would go so bad that they want to deduct money from my income support?”"

"the Quote comes from a mother whose child received the financial support of the Majblomman, somewhere in Sweden. The money she had been granted will be enough for the new clothes and a bike to the child. The mother is dejected after receiving the information from the social services that majblommepengarna can get the municipality to chocksänka family income support. The mother hears the desperate of the to the Majblomman and ask if it is possible to take back the gift card and payout to avoid a lowering of the income support she is entitled to under the social services act. "

"the Incident is a have the poorest ratings for the current municipality. At the same time is far from unusual, the Majblomman regularly receive information about similar situations. In some municipalities is the ignorance of the reality of families in economic vulnerability is striking. The social services act and the interpretations it gives space to get a different outcome depending on place of residence and municipal guidelines. In some municipalities, there is the opinion that a gift voucher as a barnrättsorganisation to grant children to reduce the försörjningstöd which the family is entitled by law to. In other cases, see the municipality as a way to compensate for the effects of a chipped society that segregate and pulling apart. All with the support of the same legislation. "

"the Save the Children figures from 2018, based on statistics from statistics SWEDEN, shows that 186 000 children in Sweden live in families that cannot afford the most necessary ochu002Feller have income support from the municipality. It is close to a tenth of all children in the country. "

"The applications for financial assistance that come to the Majblomman clearly shows what are the consequences of child poverty in Sweden. The parents who contact us rarely have the opportunity to pay for the tuition fees for activities, winter clothes in the right size, a bike or entry to a theme park. This economic inequality makes some children's dreams are limited, that their trust in the society deteriorates, and both self-esteem and faith in the future is hampered."

"Poverty in the welfare state Sweden is about social exclusion and lowered the dignity. To change this it is required that municipalities have an understanding of the conditions that govern the existence of financial vulnerability. The reality for families with children who are forced to take the difficult step to seek income support should be a fundamental understanding and controlling of the work of all the Swedish municipalities. "

"the Mayflower's reviews of the work at the municipal level to tackle child poverty, however, show that the level of knowledge varies widely and that this permeates the processes and guiding decisions. "

"Since the recession of the 90s, most of the families with children in Sweden received a standard raise thanks to increasing earnings from employment. At the same time a group of children, whose parents are often dependent on the social security system, lagged behind. "

"the Gap has gotten bigger between the kids that live in prosperity, and the children have to forgo such things that are necessary in everyday life. In Unicef's global shaving of economic equality among children in Sweden between 2010 and 2015 tumbled from place five to place 16."

"Majblomman is working to strengthen opportunities and rights for the children living in economic vulnerability. Each year, thousands of children the support of the Majblomman, not in order to strengthen the hushållskassan but with a focus on the individual needs of the child. "

"In principle, the Majblomman not prevent the social services from the lower försörjningsstödet as a consequence of the support that the Majblomman pay out. But if the municipalities, which interpret the social services act in this way persistently, will we no longer be able to strengthen the children and families who need it the most. It would be an absurd and unfortunate development. "
