Cancel the cut to Universal Credit and extend to all claimants

Six million people rely on Universal Credit to get by. Over a third of them are in work. Cutting the £20 a week pandemic top up at the end of September risks pushing even more people into deeper debt and poverty, just as furlough is also due to end.

We can’t let this happen.

Please join us in calling on all MPs to pile the pressure on the Chancellor to cancel the cut to Universal Credit and extend the payment to all claimants. It's shocking that 2.2m people on legacy benefits have been denied the payment so far. Write to your MP using our postcode locator below.

The fact is the UK has one of most un-generous social security systems in comparable European countries. The £20 a week increase has only highlighted that the level of benefits were simply not enough to protect the growing number of households forced to turn to them when the crisis hit. It provides a vital boost to the economy as well through higher household spending! If you have a story to tell about Universal Credit and why the £20 a week rise should be kept, please use this form to share it with us.
