It’s really important that MPs hear directly from those with personal experience of trying to make ends meet on universal credit and working tax credit. If you feel comfortable doing so, please share how the £20 cut has impacted you and your finances. We’ll add this to the email. You will be able to review your email on the next page.

There were 4.3 million children growing up in poverty in the UK last year - that is 9 children in a classroom of 30. This October the government cut universal credit by £20 a week. Families already struggling to keep the gas and electric on, buy new school uniforms and pay for the food shop have lost more than £80 a month. We urgently need your help to persuade the government to reinstate this lifeline for families in the autumn budget.
