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.

Uplift young women: uplift benefits

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 support them and sign the petition now? 

How you’ve helped us make a difference in 2020

  • In May, over 2000 of you used our unpaid work calculator to help us highlight the unpaid work that women do
  • In June, you helped us raise money to send our Ignored, undervalued and underpaid report to 650 MPs
  • In October, as a direct result of emailing MPs, 5 young women met Minister for Women Baroness Berridge. This allowed them to share stories of what life as a young woman is really like during the coronavirus crisis.
