Universal credit is still not fit for families

Source By: Child Poverty Action Group

Child Poverty Action Group  have now produced their first report of the main problems they are seeing. This was shared with the Department for Work and Pensions, but to keep the pressure up on the Government to make changes, the MPs need to be aware of all these issues.

Write to your MP

Many MPs in areas where universal credit is rolling out at the moment will be seeing these issues, and others, in their constituent casework. It would be great to capture these cases, so we can get a bigger picture of the problems – making our case for change even stronger.

Write to your MP today
