Universal Credit: a fair deal for single parent families?

Universal Credit: a fair deal for single parent families?

Single parents will, on average, be financially worse off as a result of Universal Credit whether working or not. Some single parents already receiving Universal Credit are facing forced evictions and struggling to afford the basics – we need your help to change this.

If you’re experiencing difficulties as a result of Universal Credit, we need your help to put pressure on the government to ensure this new system is truly fit for purpose. Write to your MP and explain the financial difficulties you're facing as a result of Universal Credit.
