£20 More for All Benefits: Day of Action

Via Edinburgh Coallition Against Poverty

We join the 2nd UK Day of Action called by Disabled People Against Cuts to demand that the £20 increase to Universal Credit introduced at the start of the pandemic be made permanent and extended to other benefits.

That the increase did not apply to legacy benefits demonstrates how the hostile environment the DWP has created for disabled claimants has not been mitigated, despite the ‘solidarity’ posturing all governments are adopting in pandemic times. We therefore call for the UK government to #KeepTheLifeline and #IncreaseDisabilityBenefits.
