We are urging the government to increase benefits to keep pace with inflation

The cost of living is rising fast. 

We’ve already seen the £20 Universal Credit uplift removed by the Chancellor, a move that pushed thousands towards food banks, and now with inflation rising at an alarming rate, stagnant benefits simply no longer cover the cost of living. 

Our benefits system should reflect the true cost of living and provide a safety net for the most vulnerable. Instead it’s leaving food banks to pick up the pieces. All over the country 

This petition calls on the UK Government to urgently increase benefit payments by at least 7% to keep pace with inflation, alongside longer term improvements to the benefits system.

The petition is being shared by the Brent Food Aid Network, the Trussell Trust, the Independent Food Aid Network and Feeding Britain

We urge everyone to sign it.
