Write to the Chancellor to stop benefit cuts

At the end of September, the government are planning to cut Universal Credit by £20 a week, to pre-pandemic levels.

Cutting Universal Credit would push 1000s of young women into poverty. The Chancellor has seen the evidence and heard the growing calls from both government and opposition MPs. But still he plans to go ahead with the cuts by the end of September.

Will you email the Chancellor today and let him know that it isn’t too late to change his mind?
