The disaster of Universal Credit isn’t going away. Right now the government is forcing families into food banks and onto the streets with a system that is meant to help those struggling to get by. It’s so broken, even the UN have stepped in to condemn it.
Right now the new minister in charge of Universal Credit, Amber Rudd, will be deciding what to do about it. She could choose to carry on with Universal Credit as it is, while more people suffer. Or she could listen to the experts – and us, the public – and fix the system once and for all.
Amber Rudd has already admitted Universal Credit isn’t perfect. But when people are suffering every day, we’re going to need more than kind words. If the first thing that lands on Amber Rudd’s desk is a petition, signed by hundreds of thousands of us, she’ll know the public are watching. She’ll know we expect her to act now.
Will you sign the petition today calling on Amber Rudd to urgently fix Universal Credit?#
