Today (6th October) the UK government is cutting £20 a week from universal credit - a devastating loss to already inadequate family incomes
We have published a new report in response which:
- states that 22,000 children will be pushed into poverty by the universal credt cut
- calls on the the Prime Minister to reverse the cut immediately
- highlights support families are still entitled to in bid to protect children from impact
- urges the First Minister to bring forward plans to double the Scottish child payment
We have also published new blog detailing how we can support families affected by the cut.
