Campaign with us

There are 1 million young women in England and Wales struggling to live on low or no pay. Join us as we campaign for a fairer working future for young women.

Write to your MP to stop benefit cuts

1.5 million young women have lost income since the start of the pandemic with many claiming benefits for the first time. The £20 uplift in Universal Credit has been a lifeline, but those receiving Carer’s Allowance and other support didn’t benefit.

Now, young women are calling on the government to permanently increase Universal Credit, not just for 6 months, and to increase Carer’s Allowance permanently too.

Will you email your MP and ask them to pledge not to cut benefits?
