Universal Credit is in the spotlight. It was intended to make the welfare system simpler and to “make work pay”.

But cuts to Work Allowances have affected those the new system was supposed to help – single parents.

We brought together three MPs – Heidi Allen (Conservative), Stephen Lloyd MP (Lib Dem) and Peter Kyle (Labour) – to make the government restore Work Allowances to their pre-2015 levels. Thousands of us took action alongside them to make the welfare system fairer.

And we won! The Chancellor, Philip Hammond, announced in the Autumn budget an extra £1.7 billion to Universal Credit, meaning that Work Allowances will be increased to £1,000 a year.

Join More United, together we can make a difference and change the way politics works.
