From ‘Onward’ (who describe themselves as ‘a powerful ideas factory for centre-right thinkers and leaders’):

For poorer families, the Government should turn Universal Credit into “UC Plus” by substantially increasing work allowances and creating a separate work allowance for second earners.  This would both directly raise the incomes of poorer working households and increase work incentives and employment. The Department of Work and Pensions should also develop options to increase Work Allowances further for families with larger numbers of children.
