The government will further outline its strategy for welfare reforms today, in particular capping the benefits of people with a certain number of children.
Alison Garnham, chief executive of the Child Poverty Action Group (CPAG), told Today presenter John Humphrys that she is "very worried" about the announcement.
"Six out of ten poor children live with a working parent," she explained.
Arguing that poor family are in need of benefits she stated: "What we are seeing is people cycling in and out of benefits because of the state of the labour markets
many jobs [these people] go to are short term, insecure and very low paid, and they find themselves back on benefits shortly afterwards."
"There is no unwillingness to work," she insisted.
