On 6 October, the UK Government took £20 a week from the pockets of six million low-income families, cutting their incomes by up to a fifth as the cost of living is set to soar.
This was the biggest overnight cut to social security since World War II and could see 1.2m people across the UK having to skip meals just to get by.
We need your help to build public pressure and ask the UK Government to reverse this cut.
Life is full of crises that we cannot plan for, such as job loss or illness, and periods of lower earnings or caring responsibilities. We all need the security and stability of a strong lifeline, not just during a national crisis, but every day.
On 27 October, the Chancellor must choose to strengthen our social security system.
That’s why we’re urging the UK Government to reverse this devastating decision and reinstate the £20 a week in Universal Credit in the upcoming Spending Review.
