Keep the social security lifeline

Reason for signing

  • Having had to rely on social support for the first time in our lives we have struggled to support our family. If it weren’t for the support from family members we’d have been another homeless family. My partner has mental health issues which led to the loss of his job and debt, this year I’ve suffered a broken ankle twice preventing me from working in my caring role. Universal Credit is woefully inadequate to support often the most vulnerable people in society.
