About #KeeptheLifeline campaign
The government is due to take more than £1,000 a year away from families on Universal Credit.
No child deserves to go hungry because the pandemic took their parent’s job away. Or miss out on learning because their family can’t afford a laptop for lockdown. They don’t deserve to feel embarrassed when their clothes don’t fit because they’re growing fast the heating bills are growing faster.
Two single mums, Rebecca and Michelle, have been campaigning hard to keep this issue at the forefront of the conversation in Parliament.
Recently, Rebecca & Michelle started a petition calling to keep the £20 lifeline and extend it to the old benefits system, where claimants are mostly people with disability.
With 10,000 signatures, the government has to reply Rebecca and Michelle’s petition. With 100,000 signatures, the mums may trigger a debate at the parliament.
Sign the petition.
