KEEP THE LIFELINE

 

Every child in Britain should get the support they need to grow up healthy and happy.

Thousands of us came together recently to help secure some extra food support for struggling families in England this winter.  

Now we need to make sure that the Government doesn’t take money away from them in April.

Please email your MP to make sure they urge Rishi Sunak, Chancellor of the Exchequer, to do just that.​

The COVID pandemic has made the lives of already struggling families so much worse. Reduced working hours, job losses and school and nursery closures have heaped extra hardship on those already facing debt and anxiety.

The extra £20 a week in Universal Credit has helped mums and dads buy food and keep the lights on. It’s a small amount of help which is making a world of difference for those who are struggling right now.

The Chancellor Rishi Sunak has deferred the decision on whether to keep the £20 uplift in Universal Credit.

This will leave families hanging, wondering if they’ll be plunged into poverty, as they lose around £1,040 a year in benefits.

Use your voice to make sure families are assured that the £20 uplift will remain beyond April and that it will be extended to those on the old benefits system.

Ask your MP today to push the Government to keep the lifeline going for Britain’s kids.
